No step to take here, saslauthd default to using PAM. It's defined in

If you plan on using IMAPS or POP3S, you will also need to generate SSL
certificate. I use the make-ssl-certs script from the ssl-cert package.

You pretty much only have to review imapd.conf/cyrus.conf, create
mailboxes (using cyradm from the cyrus21-admin package) and configure
your MTA to deliver to LMTP. The package installation have taken care
of the rest (mkimap et cie).
One thing to check out for that may save you an hour or three of
troubleshooting : make sure the user Exim run as is member of the sasl
Beside that, I think you are on the right track. Good luck !
