Yes, I know, that's what Teemu already pointed out. And yes, I can confirm, that http://dovecot.org/releases/2.2/rc/dovecot-2.2.17.rc1.tar.gz compiles without an installed bash under FBSD 10.1-STABLE

I can live with having to install bash in order to be able to follow hg development (what I do in a test jail), but it's from my point of view a little bit of "overkill", if one needs bash just for creating two c-files from two bash-scripts and their corresponding txt-files once in a while.

Again, please don't get me wrong, I am not complaining! I can live with the situation as is. I only wanted to report that issue because you asked for feedback from non-linux users ;-)
