This isn't exactly a problem. You'll have to tell fetchmail that it has 
to use cyrus' own delivery program. Just look at the various fetchmail 
mta options (keyword mta, commandline -m). If your situation is more 
complex (i.e. you need to filter the mails before they are delivered to 
your local cyrus accounts) you can use a fetchmail -> procmail -> deliver 
chain (deliver is the program used by cyrus to handle local deliveries 
via lmtp).
