dovecot / tcp-wrappers / FBSD 10.3

Can anyone share the proper config to get wrappers working in dovecot ?

The dovecot examples do not seem to work, and I thought perhaps FBSD 
needs slightly different configs.

I've compiled with:   -DHAVE_LIBWRAP

which I presume is the first step.

The example for dovecot.conf in uncommenting:

login_access_sockets = tcpwrap

merely causes a log error of "imap-login: Error: connect(tcpwrap) 
failed: No such file or directory"

Suggestions/Direction much appreciated.
