Neither did work; I moved everything apart from 
/usr/local/lib/sasl2/libplain.* to another directory.
I added 'sasl_mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN' to imapd.conf and I tried 'cyrus 
--user cyrus localhost' as well as 'cyrus --user cyrus --auth login 
localhost'. Now there appears another error message:

        Login failed: generic failure at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/ \
        i586-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 118
