Description of problem:
Dovecot comes without vpopmail authentication compiled in binary
provided by the rpm package.

When dovecot is compiled from source with default configure options
vpopmail authentication mechanism is included. What are the reasons
Fedora rpm to come without it? Can it be included in next update?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dovecot- and the dovecot- update

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install dovecot rpm
2. Edit /etc/dovecot.conf to use vpopmail authentication
3. Start dovecot (/etc/init.d/dovecot start)

Actual Results:  
snippet from maillog:

Jun 21 12:42:18 mail dovecot: Dovecot starting up
Jun 21 12:42:20 mail dovecot-auth: Unknown userdb type 'vpopmail'
Jun 21 12:42:20 mail dovecot: Auth process died too early - shutting down
Jun 21 12:42:20 mail dovecot: child 18802 (auth) returned error 89
Jun 21 12:42:20 mail imap-login: fd_send(-1) failed: Broken pipe

We cannot fix this without including vpopmail in the Fedora
distribution, which will not happen.  The best you can do is rebuild
the SRPM when vpopmail is installed on your system.

WONTFIX... unless Timo can do something upstream, but that is doubtful.
