torture continues! Another install error with cyrus imap

Hello Marco,

Thanks a lot for sending a detailed email. The main reason that I am
not using an RPM is because I have Red Hat Linux 3 ES which
unfortunately does not comes with Cyrus RPMS. That answers the first
question of why I am doing this. Second I need to use postfix to
integrate with cyrus imap so I have to configure everything with PAM
for authentication , reasons being that I am going to use
Opengroupware to use Cyrus IMAP.

Now the second issue is with the version of Berkely database on my
system. I already have the RPM 4.1.25 installed on my system and I
cannot uninstall it because it has dependencies on the system. So I
tried to use ver 4.3.8 but had all sorts of issues with it. ON
compiling with already installed RPM 4.1.25 I get errors related to
the post here

which is the latest situation.

So I cannot use the installed version of RPM on the system because it
will not work as redhat themselves state in the above post.

And accordingly to my little knowledge of linux if I try to upgrade
this RPM I am not sure if the other dependent packages like Apache
will crash, so now I don't know what to do. The issue surly is
Berkeley DB now, but should I try to install and upgrade on the
current RPM or should I install a second version of Berkley DB on an
alternate location and try to compile everything with it.

Any suggestions please, before I go into the daily drill of compiling
all cyrus imapd dependencies.
