	I have link /usr/lib/sasl2 to /usr/local/sasl2/lib/sasl2/, so I think it will not be problem.

You may have hit the same issue that Brent did. Most likely you will need
to create this file within /usr/lib/sasl2 or /etc/sasl2 instead.

Alternatively, you can set the environment variable SASL_CONF_PATH to
instruct the sasl glue library where to search for config files. See the
man page for sasl_getconfpath_t for details.
