default Sendmail plus Cyrus-SASL

Hello all!

I'm trying to setup a sort of relay or gateway using Sendmail. Here's 
there deal:

Our hosted email provider let's us send them email via SMTP but that 
only works within the company's domain. If we want to send out of the 
domain we need to authenticate against their SMTP server.

We have these nifty Canon copiers that can scan and email the document 
in PDF form. Unfortunately, I can't put a username and password for SMTP 
authentication. Thefore, I'm thinking I can setup Sendmail to accept 
email from that Canon copier and then relaty it acting as a client to 
our hosted email provider's SMTP server.

It seems like I need AUTH to do this which requires Cyrus-SASL. Okay, so 
 I installed Cyrus-SASL from pkgsrc. Now I'm trying to rebuild sendmail 
to be able to use SASL but I'm getting the following error:

dfly# /etc/rc.d/sendmail forcestart
Starting sendmail.
/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, 
required by "sendmail"
/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, 
required by "sendmail"

Okay, when I built sendmail I added the following lines to my 
/etc/defaults/make.conf file:

SENDMAIL_CFLAGS=-I/usr/pkg/include/sasl -DSASL
Then I used the following websites as a guide to getting this to work:
So far I'm stuck with that "" not found, required by 
"sendmail" error.

Any help would be appreciated. If there's an easier way to do this, such 
as another program then I'm all ears. I've always known that Sendmail 
was a bitch to configure.

Thanks in advance,

Joseph Garcia
