problems with imap and imsp installation

I have just installed a new Sun box running Solaris 8 and expected that installing
the cyrus IMAP and IMSP packages would be simple!
First I installed BerkleyDB.3.3 and Perl and they went OK.
Then I picked up cyrus-sasl -2.1.13 and installed that once I sorted out the
--with-... and --disable-... options I needed. Not too bad.
Then cyrus-imapd-2.1.13 and that seemed to install OK, again, once I had sorted out
the configure options I needed. The IMAP and POP server side seem to run and
respond to telnet connections and imtest worked.
I then tried to use cyradm to add some users and that is where it went downhill!
I get the following
Can't load '/usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris/auto/Cyrus/IMAP/IMAP.so' for module Cyrus::IMAP: ld.so.1: perl: fatal: relocation error: file /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris/auto/Cyrus/IMAP/IMAP.so: symbol sasl_client_init: referenced symbol not found at /usr/perl5/5.00503/sun4-solaris/DynaLoader.pm line 169.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
As far as I can make out, this is a dynamic library problem, but I have completely
failed to find a cure for it.
Help with that will be most welcome.
I then moved on to IMSP and downloaded cyrus-imspd-v1.6a3 and tried to build that.
This failed because there is no config.h.in present! I looked at v1.5.28 and that
has the same problem. On further reading I found that both these versions need
version 1.5.x of sasl. I had just installed 2.1.13 because that is what IMAP needs!
So I downloaded cyrusimsp from cvs to get a version which would work with 2.1.13.
It now seems I need autoconf (and aclocal and autoheader?) before I can make more
progress with that.
Will this never end?
Surely, thousands of people must have installed the cyrus imap/imsp combination on
Solaris 8 without anything like this trouble?
