Confused about auxprop/sasldb

I'm trying to get cyrus-sasl-2.1.15 and cyrus-imapd-2.1.14 working 
using the sasldb for authentication.  I have managed to get 
authentication working with saslauthd and pam, but I don't want to set 
the mail users up with logins.

The /etc/imapd.conf contains:
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
sasl_auxprop_plugin: sasldb

When I use the imtest application it says user cannot be found and the 
syslog reports:
Aug 12 22:48:30 solaris imapd[19895]: [ID 702911 auth.debug] could not 
find auxprop plugin, was searching for 'sasldb'

A listing of the sasldb file is
-rw-r-----   1 cyrus    mail       24576 Aug 12 18:14 /etc/sasldb2

I am using Solaris 9 and have installed both imapd and sasl in 
'/opt/cyrus'. The directory /opt/cyrus/lib/sasl2/ contains:  libgssapiv2.a                
which is where it'd be looking for plugins (and sasldb is there) - if 
I'm interpreting correctly.

Any help would be appreciated.
