You can do this, but you have to use the correct options for SASL v2:

pwcheck_method: saslauthd auxprop

and run:

saslauthd -a getpwent

Keep in mind that pwcheck_method only specifies how to verify plaintext
passwords. If a client tries to use any other mechanism (eg, CRAM),
then SASL will always use an auxprop plugin (eg, sasldb2).
