Description of Problem:

An authenticated smtp is necessary to support roaming users (and to match
M$ Exchange's functionality), elsewise the client is untrusted and postfix
will reject mail relaying (anti-spam).  Compiling SASL into postfix is
supplies a way to authenticate smtp.  (The other way would be SSL/TLS --

Attached is a patch to postfix-20010202-4.src.rpm's specfile that enables
SASL as supported by the cyrus-sasl-1.5.24-17.i386.rpm distributed with
RedHat 7.1.

Patch uses macro definition flag to trigger (or not) sasl support.  (Uses
ugly hack, is there another way to %declare a empty rpm macro?)

There is a sane way to assign an empty value, by the way.

%define something %{_nil}
