Thanks to migrating to a new machine, I've just had the opportunity to
confirm that installing cyrus-sasl-devel, then rerunning configure, was
sufficient to get past this failure.  But the absence of
cyrus-sasl-devel did not stop building the rest of the package.

So now the trick is whether to skip this test if the prereq is not met,
or whether to make configure more insistent that the package exist.

Furthermore, configure barfed on me three separate times, before I got
to the point of reproducing this failure; each solved by installing more

Again, it would be nice to have a configure patch that recognizes
failure for these mandatory packages with only one failed run, rather
than the current three separate configure runs to identify missing
prereqs one at a time.
