Actually, this brings up something that I've been meaning to look into,
but haven't gotten around to yet.

I installed Cyrus on my RedHat 7.3 box using Simon Matter's source RPMs. 
I have syslog configured as above for local6.*.  However, I don't see
anything being logged to imapd.log.  Instead everything is going into

Simon: did you modify the code to use the mail facility instead of local6?
 Or was it a build configuration option that I missed?
