Cyrus not using saslauthd

It looks like your saslauthd and libsasl2 come from two different 
versions.  This should be OK.  So, you can start saslauthd -m 
<path_to_socket_do_not_include_mux> -a ...  Or in imapd.conf use 
sasl_saslauthd_path param (This one needs to include the full path 
including /mux)
