Well my goal is to get the source into Mozilla so it will end up being
built in the release Thunderbird and Mozilla applications that people
can download from mozilla.org.
So not only do I need to provide source, it needs to build and run on
every platform out there. And I'm not sure if I'll be allowed to use
Cyrus or not. If I have to move Apple-supplied binaries out of the way
to use Cyrus functionality, that's not such a good thing.

Will this break anything on the Macintosh? I am not running a mail
server on my development Macintosh and I have no remote users to ssh
It looks like doc/macosx.html needs to be updated.
