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.
