That's not quite enough info to figure out what you've got wrong
with your setup.  You're probably going to need to provide a bit more
detail, but just as a wild guess, you probably don't have a smtpd.conf
file (or perhaps it should be called Sendmail.conf) in /usr/pkg/lib/sasl.
As an example, mine contains:

pwcheck_method: saslauthd

Also, you've got "opendarwin" in the email you are using.  Is that
a coincidence, or are you perhaps posting to a mailing list for
the wrong OS?
