I recently upgraded Cyrus-Sasl on my mailserver, and suddenly I can't use SMTP AUTH anymore.

This is what I get from my maillog that involves sasl:
Sep  5 20:26:16 [postfix/smtpd] smtpd_sasl_initialize: SASL config file is smtpd.conf
Sep  5 20:26:16 [postfix/smtpd] sql_select option missing
Sep  5 20:26:16 [postfix/smtpd] auxpropfunc error no mechanism available_

Gentoo Linux.
Postfix, MySQL, Courier-IMAP, Cyrus-SASL

By upgrade do you mean that you went from a Cyrus SASL 1.x to a 2.x release? If so you'll need to rebuild Postfix against the later SASL version.

jlevie: From 2.x.y to 2.x.z (the latest release in portage).

pablouruguay: Only one line helped me there, but it's getting me somewhere now.

And now it's working. After some other troubling with other settings in postfix.
