      Please complain to the vendor of the software that announces AUTH
      support and that fails to implement the AUTH=<> option. You may
      refer them to RFC 4954 which has all the details.

      The file size must be the same before and after editing.

      $ cp /usr/libexec/postfix/smtp smtp.new
      $ perl -pi -e 's/ AUTH=/\0AUTH=/' smtp.new
      $ ls -l /usr/libexec/postfix/smtp smtp.new
      -rwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 1700160 Nov 8 20:12 /usr/libexec/postfix/smtp
      -rwxr-xr-x 1 wietse wheel 1700160 Nov 12 08:13 smtp.new
      $ cmp -l /usr/libexec/postfix/smtp smtp.new
      313969 40 0

      The numbers 1700160 and 313969 will be different on your system
      (unless you use the same FreeBSD version and the same compiler
      options as I did).
