	Sorry but I'm running debian sarge and didn't install from source.
	Installed sarge binaries using apt-get. I don't know if cyrus-sasl
	has a different name on debian, but saslauth and other sasl
	commands and binaries exist.

	I even tried running saslauth by hand and specifying the options
	manually. In this case, saslauth runs many child processes. But
	reloading postfix and then telnetting to local port 25, gives the
	following error:

Apr 22 17:50:00 linux postfix/postfix-script: refreshing the Postfix mail
Apr 22 17:50:00 linux postfix/master[12443]: reload configuration
Apr 22 17:50:19 linux postfix/smtpd[12505]: starting TLS engine
Apr 22 17:50:19 linux postfix/smtpd[12505]: fatal: no SASL authentication

/usr/lib/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

I created the sasldb too and the cacerts too, then modified main.cf for
smtp auth. What else do I need to do? I followed thee
postfix.state.of.mind.de postfix-tls howto and everything went okay except
the sasl thing. I don't know what the other smtpd warning means.

Anyway, I'm posting this to the debian-user list too in case it's
debian-specific problem. If someone from debian-user replies, please cc me
a copy as I'm not subscribed there.
