Of course.  But the documentation you may be reading is most likely
written from a "there is only Linux" viewpoint, and I'm just pointing
out that a "you need dovecot source" may be based on the hidden
assumption "dovecot is installed like Ubuntu installs it".

Then it's still a bug -- that code should be in a library installed by
dovecot and made available to plugins.
