Sendmail SMTP AUTH Howto

Hi, I'm following SiegeX's howto when i get to the part to compile cyrus-sasl. he instructs to first run this script:

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--enable-anon \
--enable-plain \
--enable-login \
--disable-krb4 \
--with-mysql \
--with-saslauthd=/var/state/saslauthd \
--with-openssl \
--with-plugindir=/usr/lib/sasl2 \
--enable-cram \
--enable-digest \

I get the following:
configure:WARNING:invalid host type
configure:WARNING:you should use --build , --host, --target

configure: loading cache ./config.cache
checking build system type....config.sub:missing argument
Try 'config.sub --help' for more information
configure error: /bin/sh config/config.sub failed

I'm running this from /usr/src/cyrus-sasl-2.1.19#

what did i do incorrectly or am i missing something?

your first mistake, was using sendmail, I don't know much about sendmail, but I see your question hasn't been answered yet so I thought I'd try and give you something else to try, postfix rocks

Postfix with OpenSSL and saslauth
