    This is not correct for sasl-2.1.x. You should use either auxprop or
    saslauthd there. Since "pam" is wrong, sasl is likely using the default
    (auxprop), hence the error messages about not being able to open the
    db (which I assume is /etc/sasldb2).

    Then saslauthd is not compiled with pam support. Try shadow just for the
    sake of testing, it would use /etc/shadow.
