As I am running own poudriere builder for our servers for different 
customers with different configurations, I created 3 slave ports for 3 
types of SASL (Cyrus SASL, Dovecot SASL, Dovecot2 SASL)
So now we have postfix-sasl (Cyrus SASL), postfix-dovecot and 
postfix-dovecot2 slave ports in our repo.

Something similar can be done for FreeBSD offical ports tree. (until 
flavours or subpackages will be there)
