Hullo Users,

I am having a compilation problem of Cyrus-sasl2 with Pam . The Pam
authentication mechanism is missing and unknown

There is no --enable-pam that I see. There is a:

--with-pam=DIR          use PAM (rooted in DIR) yes

But you probably only need to use that option if your pam installation is
in a location that ./configure cannot find.

That indicates that ./configure can't find pam/pam_appl.h, whereever it may
be installed. If that file is installed, but ./configure isn't doing the
right thing, you could specify a --with-pam, or you could specify a
'CPPFLAGS' environment variable to assist it with finding the location,

./configure ...

And if you have linking errors, you might have to do:

export LDFLAGS

as well. See ./configure --help for details.

Couls this be the problem and  How can i fix this.

It is really problematic
