What version of the cyrus sasl lib do you have? Did you build it 
yourself or install it as a package?

I believe older versions do not support the sasl_set_path option 
allowing you to override the location. There is a compile time 
conditional in the qpidd code that is supposed to check for this.

You could also try setting SASL_PATH to include /usr/local/etc/sasl2/ 
which should pick up the qpidd.conf file there.
