Cyrus-Imap 2.1.13 wont compile on openbsd

Quick follow up....

First, wasnt sure which mailing list to send this too, but it probably
wont here for all three (cyrus-bugzilla, cyrus-devel and info-cyrus)...

Second, I was able to get this to compile... In the process i noticed
two things... One the ./configure script assumes a couple things that
arent true on an openbsd system.  Openssl is part of a default openbsd
install.. And are installed as system libraries ( includes are in
/usr/include/ssl and /usr/include/openssl, and libs are in
/usr/lib/ssl).  The other problem was the imtest.c file itself...  The
#ifdef block appears to be another source of error in an openbsd
system..  I'm not sure why, but with openbsd, the else block is needed
as well (the sasl includes, and a couple function defines...).

If you need any other info, let me know.  Hopefully this will help with
getting cyrus better supported in openbsd ;)
