There's no SIEVE daemon. SIEVE functionality is implemented as a plugin
to the dovecot LDA. You sould check out the dovecot-lda module from CVS
and build it against your dovecot sources.

This is not processed until you build and configure the sieve plugin.

You miss a "protocol lda" section specifying which plugins should be
loaded. See http://wiki.dovecot.org/LDA/Sieve for documentation.
