I had a similar problem earlier, but it may not be the same issue. When I got the
permission denied errors for the cyrus db4 dbs it was because my permissions were
screwed up for the directories that are used for the db. In my case it was /var/imap.
This directory (and subdirs created by the cyrus-imap/tools/mkimap script if you
installed from source) should be owned by cyrus and the group cyrus belongs to
(most likely mail).
BTW, I believe the dbs are created automatically when you first start run cyrus.
