Currently, the Cyrus-SASL library code that we use reads its configuration information only from the standard installed locations such as /etc/sasl2 .
Because of this, our testing cannot run without messing with the standard location, which is probably not what our users or developers are expecting. Not to mention that doing so probably requires root access...
This means that, currently, we do not automate SASL-related testing. It can only be done on systems that we have manually prepared in advance.
Fix this so that SASL-related tests can run like all of our other "make check" tests.
fixed by svn rev 947748.
new test run_sasl_authentication_test created in "make check"
run_sasl_authentication_soak in "make check-long"
