A few other issues:

You advise the user to install a dovecot user with the command

====
useradd  -c "Dovecot User" -d /var/empty -g=uid -s /sbin/nologin dovecot
====

Why not put this into the INSTALL script? Especially if you tell users to
remove the "dovecot" account after uninstalling.

And putting the dovecot user into login class "daemon" would also be nice in
that case.

The defaults in /etc/dovecot.conf are for --prefix=/usr. Maybe you could fill
in the correct values at build time according to LOCALBASE to avoid confusion
about the pathnames.

Otherwise it runs fine here on -current/i386 and feels amazingly fast. (Tested
with mutt-1.5.4 and kmail.)
