Looks good! I've committed your patch to svn trunk in r19923. I made a
few tweaks to the log message before committing (see below).

Update the Unix build system to link Cyrus SASL into svnserve, if
Cyrus SASL is available.

NOTE: We don't actually use the Cyrus SASL library yet, but we are
     planning to do so.

Review by: me

 * build/ac-macros/sasl.m4: New file.

 * configure.in: Call SVN_LIB_SASL.

 * Makefile.in
  (SVN_SASL_LIBS): New AC_SUBSTed variables.

 * aclocal.m4
  Add build/ac-macros/sasl.m4 to the list of supplementary macros.

 * build.conf
  (sasl): New entry.
  (libsvn_ra_svn, svnserve): Add sasl to the list of dependencies.

That sounds reasonable to me, but I'm not particularly familiar with
svnserve at this point. Could you post your svnserve questions in a
separate thread so that they get more attention?
