The file date is back in June 2005 which is before I got the vps, so I'm guessing it's put there at build time.

Just guessing, but maybe
Code:
POSTFIX_SASL=0
is the reason postfix didn't install with sasl support?

If so, do I just change that to
Code:
POSTFIX_SASL=1
and uncomment
Code:
# - sasl_library=cyrus-sasl-devel
then re-install to get it to work as it should?
No, that won't work because you will have to rebuild Postfix first. /etc/postfix/postfix.spec.sf is just a configuration file for the Postfix build...

I recommend you do everything as outlined in the FC3 tutorial ( http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_3 ).
First check /etc/apt/sources.list. It should contain
Code:
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 tupdates
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 tupdates
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/2/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms
, nothing else. Run
Code:
apt-get update
afterwards.
Then do the Postfix stuff as described on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_se...dora_core_3_p4 , starting with
Code:
apt-get install cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-devel cyrus-sasl-gssapi cyrus-sasl-md5 cyrus-sasl-plain postfix dovecot
(I've replaced imap with dovecot for you already).
