Failure making cyrus-imapd-3.0.5 on CentOS 7

Greetings again,

I've made it a bit further in my attempt to install cyrus-imapd, but am
getting failures when executing `make`.  The failure is shown below.

touch man/tls_prune.8
touch man/unexpunge.8
touch man/squatter.8
touch man/ctl_zoneinfo.8
touch man/httpd.8
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/dave/cyrus-imapd-3.0.5'
Making all in perl/annotator
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/dave/cyrus-imapd-3.0.5/perl/annotator'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `all'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/dave/cyrus-imapd-3.0.5/perl/annotator'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/dave/cyrus-imapd-3.0.5'
make: *** [all] Error 2

The directory where the `make` fails contains the following files.

[dave at sinecure cyrus-imapd-3.0.5]$ ls -l perl/annotator/
total 56
-rw-r--r--. 1 dave dave  1412 Dec 14 18:19

I execute the following commands.  Some notes: I originally did not use
the `autoreconf -f -i -s`, but when the `make` failed I thought I'd try
generating the make files.

curl -o cyrus-imapd-3.0.5.tar.gz
tar xf cyrus-imapd-3.0.5.tar.gz
cd cyrus-imapd-3.0.5/
sudo yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
sudo yum install openssl-devel jansson-devel sqlite-devel \
    libxml2-devel libical-devel cyrus-sasl-devel libicu-devel
autoreconf -f -i -s
./configure --prefix=/opt/cyrus-imapd --enable-http --enable-calalarmd

I've been searching to see if anyone else is having the same problems,
but I've come up empty.  Any suggestions as to what to try next, or what
information I could provide that would be useful in making such
suggestions, would be appreciated!
