To follow up my own questions.... 

I wound up tracking down my problems to a permission problem with
/etc/sasldb. Making it accessible to the postfix group fixed the problem.
However, I thought postfix was running chrooted? The instructions I'd
read previously seemed to indicate so. Tailing both mail.log and auth.log
was very helpful :)

So, I'm reading over the postfix-doc package and getting a feel for
things. Just figured I'd follow up on this in case it helps anyone else.
