Question about upgrading from 2.2.8 to 2.2.12

I'm finally getting around to upgrading our Cyrus IMAP installation from 
2.2.8 to 2.2.12 on Solaris 9 SPARC.  I'm using the same SASL (2.0.18) 
and Berkeley DB (4.2.52) for 2.2.12 as is compiled into the current 
2.2.8 version.  The only change I will probably make is to upgrade 
OpenSSL from 0.9.7g to 0.9.7j.  Does anyone know of any issues I may 
encounter?  Should I just be able to compile the new version and do a 
make install and not have to worry about corrupting any of the *.db or 
cyrus.* files.  In both the 2.2.8 and 2.2.12 compiles I'm selecting the 
default database backends for the *.db files.

Here's my configure command:

CC=gcc \
CPPFLAGS="-I/local/BerkeleyDB-4.2.52/include -I/local/cyrus/include" \
LDFLAGS="-L/local/BerkeleyDB-4.2.52/lib -R/local/BerkeleyDB-4.2.52/lib" \
LIBS="-lsocket -lnsl" \
./configure \
--prefix=/local/cyrus \
--with-cyrus-prefix=/local/cyrus \
--with-cyrus-user=cyrus \
--with-cyrus-group=mail \
--with-auth=unix \
--enable-netscapehack \
--with-perl=/local/perl/bin/perl \
--enable-murder \
--with-libwrap=/usr/sfw \
--with-openssl=/local/openssl-0.9.7g \
--with-dbdir=/local/BerkeleyDB-4.2.52 \

Thanks in advance for any advice.
