Yeah, I see how the average reader might be tricked into thinking they
need this.  I thought of some information earlier today that I'll put
in.  Basically, it will spell out that unless you're running a server
which authenticates clients with cyrus-sasl, then you don't need to do
anything with the package.

As for the commands, I just looked at the Makefile and did what it would do.
