when I start Cyrus on my machine after a complete install with all
dependencies I get this error

[root at lb01-s06 config]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/cyrus start
saslauthd[31190] :set_auth_mech   : unknown authentication mechanism: pam

and on checking saslauthd I see that pam is not available

saslauthd 2.1.21
authentication mechanisms: getpwent rimap shadow

How do I enable pam for saslauthd so that it works for me.

Thanks a lot in advance.
