You should be able to compile cyrus-sasl-2.1.9 over the redhat RPM and have it
work. Or you could try removing the RPM compile/install 2.1.9 and if it
doesn't work, reinstall the 2.1.7 RPM. I believe the redhat RPM is compiled
with something equivalent to --prefix=/usr (you can verify with the SRPM).
The other option, would be to leave 2.1.9 installed into /usr/local/lib and
modify your startup scripts in init.d to do this before you launch any of the
That will cause the linker to look in /usr/local/lib _before_ /usr/lib and
should find the 2.1.9 libraries before the 2.1.7 libraries.
When you symlink /usr/lib/sasl2 to /usr/local/lib/sasl2 above, what you're
actually doing is using the sasl 2.1.7 library with the sasl 2.1.9 modules.
Your 2.1.7 library is /usr/lib/libsasl2.so and its modules are in
/usr/lib/sasl2. As well, your 2.1.9 library is /usr/local/lib/libsasl2.so and
its modules are in /usr/local/lib/sasl2. There will also be further issues
I wouldn't really keep two copies around, especially since you'll be using a
common auth method (ie pam), but the choice is yours. You can experiement
with each, but make a backup first :).
Something like this should compile you a package like redhat's with what you
want, but I can't guarantee it since I haven't personally done it.
./configure --enable-static --with-pic --enable-shared --disable-java

--without-pwcheck --enable-anon --enable-cram --enable-digest
