If you also need a POP3/IMAP server you might want to take a look at 
Dovecot. I'm using Dovecot SASL. I works flawlessly and is very easy to 
set up. I'm using it on an OpenBSD box and it works very well with BSD 
Auth. It should work just as well with PAM. The integration into Postfix 
was very easy. However if you don't need a POP3/IMAP server it might be 
overkill to install Dovecot just for SASL.
There is also GNU SASL in the ports (security/gsasl). However I never 
used it.

Best regards,
