Unfortunately, I can't read your ktrace output on NetBSD-1.6.2.  I
also don't understand what is your setup since you don't describe your
configuration in enough detail.  What did you chroot?  Postfix?  What
about authdaemond and saslauthd?  Are their socket files readable by
a chrooted process?  Since authdaemond and saslauthd both require Unix
domain sockets to communicate, they would both also need to be running
in the same chroot as the Postfix process so that they could access
the same socket files.
