Thanks.  That was it, I did not have dovecot-devel installed from 

I still had to tell ./configure where to find it though.

./configure --with-dovecot=/usr/lib64/dovecot/

(Which is good, because I was having trouble telling the dovecot source 
code config where to find the postgreSQL development packages for 9.0. 
PGSQL support is already compiled into the ATRPM build so I'm glad that 
I can just use that.)
