Dovecot needs to be compiled first for this to work. The dovecot-config
file is produced upon executing ./configure. This is no different from
the old cmusieve plugin.

However, it does indeed currently not allow you to build against dovecot
headers only. I can change this for the next release, but then the sieve
tools and the testsuite will not be compiled.
