Bug#626553: cyrus-imapd: pts binaries (ptloader, ptdump, ptexpire) are not compiled

Package: cyrus-imapd
Version: 2.4.8-4
Severity: normal

An LDAP backed pts config isn't possible with the current version of
the cyrus-imapd packages (the ptloader server and pt* utilities) aren't
built as part of the current Debian package.

This is essentially a duplicate of this bug report (which contains 
further details):


Which doesn't seem to be attached to the cyrus-imapd-2.2 package in stable
or the 2.4.x packages in testing/unstable.  Maybe it got lost in the shuffle?

Is there a reason not to enable the building of the ptloader and friends?
Without them it's not possible to do LDAP authorization with cyrus imapd.

I'd love to help resolve this issue (as LDAP authz is a critical part 
of my organization's cyrus installation).
