Cyrus SASL 1.5.x has been dead for quite a while now.  It is 
unmaintained software by the Cyrus SASL authors, and the last release on 
that branch was over 2 years ago -- there are no security fixes provided 
for that branch anymore.  Supporting unmaintained software is not one of 
the goals of pkgsrc, and providing a false "choice" of using 
unmaintained and insecure software versus the actively maintained 
version of that same software is simply not something I'm comfortable doing.

Apache 1.x is still being actively maintained by the Apache HTTPd 
developers, but when they declare that branch dead, we will probably 
also remove it from pkgsrc.
