I just install the updated "openssl-0.9.8k_3" to "openssl-0.9.8k_5" and
then rebuilt "postfix-current-2.7.20090712,4" and
"cyrus-sasl-saslauthd-2.1.23". Now when Postfix starts, I am receiving
this error message:

Sep 20 08:15:51 scorpio postfix/smtpd[4050]: sql_select option missing
Sep 20 08:15:51 scorpio postfix/smtpd[4050]: auxpropfunc error no mechanism available

The "/var/log/messages" log is also filled with these error messages.
However, I cannot discover anything inappropriately happening with
Postfix. It appears to working correctly and I have no indication of
mail being lost or refused.

I do not use MySQL with Postfix.

cat /usr/local/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf
