Thank you very much, Mark.

Yes, indeed, it was the problem.  Thanks to the FreeBSD Daemons for
inspiring you.

I recompiled everything:  cclient, imap-uw and pine4
with the options you suggested, and everything worked perfectly.

I installed FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE just for learning to use it.  It was a
little scary to find the ports without any changes even though pam was
completely reorganized.  Maybe it is worth a bug-report/change-request.

I saw a message in the ports telling that it could be a good idea
include something like:   make help    in every port to list the
options you can use on them. Of course, you can read the Makefile,
but I think it is a little too weird to do that.

Thank you, again.
