Today I tried to set up Postfix with a smarthost, which needs SMTP 
authentication. But Postfix ist just compiled with Dovecot, so it can just do 
SMTP authentication as a Server, not as a client. states:

What SASL implementations are supported

This document describes Postfix with the following SASL implementations:

    * Cyrus SASL version 1 (client and server).
    * Cyrus SASL version 2 (client and server).
    * Dovecot protocol version 1 (server only, Postfix version 2.3 and later)

Postfix version 2.3 introduces a plug-in mechanism that provides support for 
multiple SASL implementations. To find out what implementations are built into 
Postfix, use the following commands:

    % postconf -a (SASL support in the SMTP server)
    % postconf -A (SASL support in the SMTP+LMTP client)

-bash-4.1$ postconf -a
-bash-4.1$ postconf -A
Include cyrus sasl instead - or additionally - to dovecot sasl.
