Looks like you'ld have to recompile it against the cyrus-sasl library.
SMTP AUTH in sendmail 8.10/8.11
sendmail 8.10/8.11 support SMTP AUTH as defined in RFC 2554 which is based
on SASL. This document describes the necessary steps for installation and
operation of this feature with sendmail 8.10 and later versions.
(2000-03-23) If you use sendmail 8.10.0 as client for SMTP AUTH, please
read the security warning.
InstallationCyrus SASL Get, compile, and install cyrus-sasl (current
(2000-07-21) version: 1.5.24). Read the docs which come with it (as well as
README and INSTALL).
Make sure the libraries are installed in a location which sendmail uses on
your system by default. The libraries must be "safe", i.e., they should be
owned by root and only writable by that user. As usual, the whole path must
be safe too.
Next, create a configuration file called Sendmail.conf if needed/wanted.
