Great! I immediately tried to put this into pkgsrc, but ...

I cannot see how this part of configure

if ! test -f "$dovecotdir/dovecot-config"; then
  echo "dovecot-config not found from $dovecotdir, use --with-dovecot=PATH"
  echo "to give path to compiled Dovecot sources or to a directory with the"
  echo "installed dovecot-config file."
  AC_MSG_ERROR([dovecot-config not found])

if test -d "$dovecotdir/src"; then
  # compiling against sources
  # compiling against installed headers
  echo "Cannot compile against the installed headers only."
  AC_MSG_ERROR([dovecot-source not found]);

is supposed to work. Either I point $dovecotdir to the source directory
and get a complaint about a missing dovecot-config or I point it to
the library directory and get a complaint that it can't compile
against headers only.
