you don't have to worry, because all the Fedora Dovecot src.rpms - to be 
precise, the spec files - also include RHEL 6 macros and the FC src.rpms 
also contain init service files, so in general it would be possible to 
rebuild Dovecot 2.2.21 as a RPM also for RHEL/CentOS 6 and by comparing 
the ghettoforge src.rpms with FC src.rpms they are looking pretty much 
identical - well ok, perhaps except some minor rebaseing.

So, the only thing -  if you should decide to rebuild the FC src.rpm - 
that you later have to take care of is to alter the ssl_cipher_list 
value back to RHEL 6/7 defaults or whatever cipher list you desire.
