mkimap no longer builds sievedir?

Just upgraded to 2.2.6, to see if maybe it was something that broke and 
then was fixed, but mkimap *used* to do the mkdir on the sievedir 
directory, but no longer appears to do so?

t2# grep -i sieve /usr/local/cyrus/bin/mkimap

So, of course, on a new install, if someone tries to add a filter, there 
is no directory to put it in, nor permissions to create that directory :(

Is there a reason why it was removed?  Any chance of having it put back 

Thanks ...
