  Upgrading pkg-config on the box this goes further but then gets stuck

configure: error: conditional "HAVE_SASL" was never defined.
Usually this means the macro was only invoked conditionally.

trying to autogen with
  ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --without-depends --without-sasl

I don't understand the problem, it seems 
  AM_CONDITIONAL(HAVE_SASL, [test "$with_sasl" != "no"])
is set outside of any conditional block in configure.in
And if I don't specify --without-sasl it breaks when looking
for the library.

  I really don't see how to fix the dist snapshot build  on RHEL4
