IMAP auths even without valid mailboxes.

My current system is SuSe 8.1. This version of saslauthd was not
compiled with LDAP support. It currently hands off authentication to
pam_ldap. I have looked for the cyrus_sasl src RPM for the version I am
running. I would rebuild it but apparently it is not available. It looks
like I will have to hack a later RPM and see if I can get it to work on
SuSe 8.1.

Does anyone know how to give pam_ldap a filter to use? That would be my
quickest fix. I will be investigating that now.
