I finally got it. I did not run make install, Silly me.
I have gone over the file Postfix-Cyrus-Web-cyradm-HOWTO
and it does not actually indicate rebuilding Postfix with Cyrus
support. It just explains how to configure it for Cyrus.
For me, this is an ambitious learning process.
This file Postfix-Cyrus-Web-cyradm-HOWTO is written for Linux
systems for the most part, so I have to translate into FreeBSD-ese.
I did run make install and now the missing dirs and files are there.
Now, for the actual configurations.
Thank you for your response;
