It is often the case that packges are not the latest version, simply
because no one has done the work.

The MAINTAINER being pkgsrc-users is code for "there isn't a specific
person who is the maintainer".  I haven't heard anything on the list
about cyrus imapd.

If you want to work on this, that's certainly welcome.  There is
documentation about pkgsrc, and I'd suggest you at least skim all of it,
and then look up things as you need to.  If you've read the parts of the
guide that seem relevant, and still have questions, then feel free to
post them here.
