Shared secret mechs in SASL2 are only available with sasldb or ldapdb 
(do I forget any?) not with saslauthd.
So if you want ldap (with is possible with saslauthd, probably you do 
that) _and_ shared secret mechs, you should go with ldapdb. It is 
available from SASL 2.1.21 and above.
I think, I posted an example conf here a while ago.

Shared secret mechs need an unencrypted password to build and check the 
challenge. So you need unencrypted passwords in ldap, which is not a 
problem at all with proper acls.
