[Dovecot] Dovecot-auth stand alone

Since you have to have a SASL implementation with Postfix, either Cyrus or
Dovecot, would it be feasable to have autoconf options to build only those parts
Currently I attempt to disable most things, except for LDAP which we want to use:
./configure --with-ldap --without-pop3d --without-passwd --without-passwd-file
--without-shadow --without-pam --without-checkpassword --without-bsdauth
--without-vpopmail --without-ssl --without-deliver --without-sql-drivers
That still compiles, and installs, imap. No way to stop that.
However, master process "dovecot" does not want to start with "protocols=" set
to empty. This is somewhat understandable, but I really do not want any
listening ports, just the Unix auth socket and dovecot-auth process. Bind
localhost for now?
I take it I should run dovecot-auth as stand-alone, setting the AUTH_1
environment variable as well as a few others.
