Dovecot appears to be running (testing required).

So far Dovecot seems to be running.  I don't want to say it's working or  
not until I've done some tests.  This is using  
--without-shared-libraries.  If it's just the linker in my system that's  
broken then this is an adequate solution.  Otherwise any information I can  
produce might be useful to you is desirable.

I put --enable-devel-check in there in the vain hope that it'd elicit  
anything useful.  I would suspect that this is again the build  
environment.  I won't included in any further tests.

Thanks again.

Kind regards
