  If your problem is truely only a path problem, you might want to try
what I do, which is adding:
  -I/usr/local/cyrus/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/sun4-solaris to the two
"exec perl" lines at the top of cyradm (see below).  Of course, if you
aren't using solaris or Perl v5.8.3, the last two components of the path
will be different for you.
  Hope this helps.

Now the top of cyradm looks like:

case "x$BASH_VERSION" in
x) exec perl -MCyrus::IMAP::Shell -I/usr/local/cyrus/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/sun4-solaris -e shell -- ${1+"$@"} ;;
*) exec perl -MCyrus::IMAP::Shell -I/usr/local/cyrus/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/sun4-solaris -e shell -- "$@" ;;
echo "$0: how did I get here?" >&2
exit 1
