please delete imap/Makefile.in : all the build rules are in /Makefile.am .

I am in favour of PKG_(PROG_)PKG_CONFIG, but if you prefer not to use
it, then you can leave configure.ac as it is.

Provided that the json code is integrated and used within libcyrus_imap
(and not libcyrus(_min), then the files have to go under imap/ -- there
are all libcyrus_imap sources. While for the future it would be wise,
to have the source files for libcyrus_imap in a separate directory, for
the next major release the directory structure will not change. This
has nothing to do with being a basic utility or not.

Having different CFLAGS per target, implies that a single source file
can be compiled several times for different targets with different -D
directives. In order to avoid disasters, Automake renames the resulting
.o files to be very long, and to contain the target, for which the files
are compiled. This long file names are avoided, if only one (AM_)CFLAGS
is used. Currently you will not see a difference, since the
-fvisibility= switch is only half-done, and there are per library
CFLAGS, but once I get it right, no files in imap/.libs will start with
imap_libcyrus_imap_X.o, but be called only X.o.

> According to my understanding, in libcyrus_min come only the files needed by the master process (as it does not link with libcyrus). If you use libjson in the imap/ folder, and not all command line utilities need the functionality from json, then I would at your place shift the handling of json from libcyrus_min to libcyrus_imap., so that the library is not loaded unnecessary.
