Sendmail and smtp-auth

Ok, I've been beating my head against a wall for a while, and the wall needs some relief.

How do enable smtp-auth when using Sendmail? Testing's Sendmail (8.12.6-7) says it supports SMTP AUTH (SASL/PAM). I've also installed the libsasl-modules-plain, and libsasl-digestmd5-plain. Reading SASL's docs talks about having an entry for type of password in Sendmail.conf, "pwcheck_method:" (sasl's Sendmail.conf, not sendmail's sendmail.conf), but the docs refer to it being placed in /usr/lib/sasl/. With Debian's file layout, those are not config files, but the libs sasl uses. I'm lost.

Thanks for your time and effort,
