Yes. I'm currently running Cyrus-IMAPD 2.0.17 installed from ports.

# pkg_info | grep db
db3-3.3.11,1 The Berkeley DB package, revision 3

The only problems I've had happened during upgrading. I've upgraded
cyrus-imapd twice on this server, which also implied upgrading
cyrus-sasl and db3. And both times after the upgrade the SASL database
where passwords are kept was unreadable, which meant users couldn't log
in. Seems like the newer cyrus-sasl (built with newer db3) couldn't
read the database created with the older version. First time when it
happened I just created new passwords for all users (a lot of hassle!).
The second time I somehow got it working after 8 hours of mucking
around, but by the end of it I was so stoned that I really don't know
*what* I did to get it working.
Now I seriously fear the day I might need to upgrade Cyrus again.
