Description of problem:

Looking at the %prein scriplet of the current i386 binary dovecot
package, it seems the spec file's %{dovecot-uid} hasn't been explanded
properly. My guess would be that it's because dashes aren't allowed in
rpm macro names, underscores should be used instead :

preinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
/usr/sbin/useradd -c "dovecot" -u %{dovecot-uid} -s /sbin/nologin -r
-d /usr/libexec/dovecot dovecot 2>/dev/null || :

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thank you for catching this! I wonder how I missed that, but I'm glad
you have better eyes than I do :-) Fixed in next.
