IMP breakage?

Ok, it seems the include path did the trick. So I can happily report imp 
seems to be working fine with the actual port tree structure, with not 
external tweaking and simply compiling imp from ports. All I did was 
setup portupgrade for the ports imp and turba not to include ldap 
backend support and to use courier imap instead of default uw-imap.

I did not need any settings in make.conf :)

would be nice if someone could confirm imp (latest version) is working 
100% too.
