imap w/cleartext on 5.4-RELEASE

I'm trying to get imap-uw built on 5.4-RELEASE so that it wil allow 
plaintext logins.  (All connections will be from localhost so I'm not 
concerned with SSL)  But it doesn't want to behave itself.  I've tried 
building it this way:

# cd /usr/ports/mail/imap-uw

and it complains that I'm buildling it with plaintext enabled, as it 

+ Building in PARTIAL compliance with RFC 3501 security
+ requirements:
+ Compliant:
++ TLS/SSL encryption is supported
+ Non-compliant:
++ Unencrypted plaintext passwords are permitted
+ In order to rectify this problem, you MUST build with:
++ SSLTYPE=unix.nopwd

but when I install it then telnet there I get:

# !telnet
telnet 0 143
Connected to 0.
Escape character is '^]'.

So somewhere it's still not allowing cleartext log-ins.  Any ideas? 
Alternatively I'd be glad to get squirelmail working with encryption but 
that doesn't want to work either.

Suggestions welcome for either problem.
