Since I didn't need the functionality of cyrus-imapd, I built imapd-2002d
against FC2 just fine, based on existing RPMs. I can provide my SRPM
privately if requested.

Note: I patched imap so that it provides folders under $HOME/imap instead
of the default, which was just $HOME (resulted in a ton of uninteresting
folders showing up via imap and being dog-slow). For my use, I put
symlinks under that dir to maildir-format mail files I want to access
via imap (I use this to access my mail from both evolution and mutt
without them stepping on each other too much).
