this would seem to be a fairly common problem.  I am unable to resolve
it myself or with any of the solutions I found in the archives..  
fbsd 4.11, and sasl is installed properly, no matter what I do to the
configure file or what I do when I attempt to configure
(--with-sasl=/path/to/it) I cannot get this message to go away!

checking sasl/sasl.h presence... no
checking for sasl/sasl.h... no
configure: error: Cannot continue without libsasl2.
Get it from


I started to write the above message, and then figured out what the
problem was... for me, anyway.   I feel a bit silly for struggling
with it.

libdir='${exec_prefix}/lib'    was where it was looking for sasl.h

so either put it in there, or edit the configure and remove the "lib" part
