You can't make it not start--it's necessary for certain authentication 
databases.  Even if you could, why are you worrying about this?  If you 
really don't want it, you'll need to switch to a different 
authentication database.  I'm pretty sure PostgreSQL doesn't require an 
authentication worker, but can't verify that as I no longer use Dovecot 1.x.
