Thanks, I copied the file to /usr/lib64/pkgconfig and was able to complete the configure command.

Now I can't get "make" to work:

   [lmr at email-dev cyrus-imapd-3.0.0]$ make
   make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

Like it says, there's no "Makefile", but I don't see any error from configure.
