You should look at what the Fedora specfile does to build the package.
Technically it's possible with some tweaking to get that package to
build on EL7, but you have to disable some things because the EL7
versions of things like Xapian are too old.  The specfile is at

Look down at what is currently line 288 for how I specifically handle
the perl/annotator directory.

There are certainly other cyrus-imapd packages for EL7 that you could
just make use of.  I was considering trying to get a non-conflicting
cyrus-imapd3 package into EPEL, but that's more difficult than just
getting the thing to build.
