I run Cyrus on Debain Sarge.  I use the Debian packages for the sasl 
libraries and modules, but I compile cyrus-imapd from source.  The debian 
packages I have installed are:

ii  libsasl2       2.1.19-1.5sarg Authentication abstraction library
ii  libsasl2-dev   2.1.19-1.5sarg Development files for authentication abstrac
ii  libsasl2-modul 2.1.19-1.5sarg Pluggable Authentication Modules for SASL
ii  sasl2-bin      2.1.19-1.5sarg Programs for manipulating the SASL users dat

In my /etc/imapd.conf file, I have the following sasl-related settings:

allowplaintext: 1
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN
sasl_minimum_layer: 0
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
