A quick suggestion - mkimap is a perl script, so you should be able to
watch what it's doing at every step and see what's going on that way.
The strace output looks really strange - things look overlapped or
mangled, but then I've never tried to trace a shell running a script and
I'm far from an expert with strace.
It also looks a lot like mkimap expects to create /var/imap, so perhaps
you should remove /var/imap and /var/spoool/imap to let it do it's thing?
$d = $conf;
print "creating $d...\n";
mkdir $d, 0755;
chdir $d or die "couldn't change to $d";
