   I've been using the SBo script for years, and upgrade when Wietse sends a
notice of a new release. I'm running 14.2, not current, and specify Cyrus on
the SlackBuild command line because that works and I had issues getting
dovecot to work. And I need to be careful about not overwriting files with
new ones, but looking for changes to make manually.

   Should I copy the build script from -current and replace the SBo script
for future upgrades? I'm already running 3.2.4 here.
