| Yes and no; in the Wiki:
| ./configure --with-dovecot=../dovecot

Ah, I didn't realize that.

There's some magic going on with the Auto* tools and parent directory,
it seems. For me, with dovecot-lda in subdirectory of dovecot,
libtool --force says
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `..'.
and automake --add-missing says
configure.in: installing `../ylwrap'
Auto* versions used:
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.5.20 (1.1220.2.287 2005/08/31 18:54:15)
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
aclocal.m4 mentions using $srcdir/.. for AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR if not
given explicitly. I'm not versed enough in Auto*magic to sort this
