Description of problem:
Downloaded the patched sendmail rpm for 6.2 listed at
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-073.html#Red%20Hat%20Linux%206.2 and it
turns out that eventhough it looks like it's supposed to have SASL support
compiled in according to the release notes:
"* Mon Jul 31 2000 Nalin Dahyabhai <email@example.com>
- okay, enable LDAP support again
- enable SMTP auth support via Cyrus SASL"
it in fact does NOT have SASL support compiled in.
Can someone fix?

Expected Results: Should have also seen a line like:

That changelog entry refers to new things added for Red Hat Linux 7.x or newer,
sasl support is not available in Red Hat Linux 6.2.
