I installed dovecot from dovecot-1.0-test51 with this configure line: 
./configure --with-mysql --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc 
--localstatedir=/var --with-ssldir=/etc/ssl --with-ssl=openssl

When I add this to my dovecot.conf:
passdb = mysql /etc/dovecot-mysql.conf

I get this in /var/log/maillog when I run "dovecot -c /etc/dovecot.conf":

Oct 21 13:59:16 one dovecot: Dovecot v1.0-test51 starting up
Oct 21 13:59:17 one dovecot: Auth process died too early - shutting down
Oct 21 13:59:17 one dovecot: auth(default): Unknown userdb type 'mysql'
Oct 21 13:59:17 one dovecot: child 13203 (auth) returned error 89

After my ./configure was complete it was also noted that mysql would be 
built into dovecot as passwd and userdb, so MySQL should be in there.

Any ideas? I use MySQL 4.0.17.
