So, I'm a bit stumped getting started ...
--with-storages=FORMATS Specifies what mailbox formats to support. Note: Independent of this option, the formats raw and shared will be always built. --with-solr Build with Solr full text search support --with-zlib Build with zlib compression support (default if detected) --with-bzlib Build with bzip2 compression support (default if detected) SQL Driver Options SQL drivers are typically used only for authentication, but they may be used as a lib-dict backend too, which can be used by plugins for different purposes. --with-sql-drivers Build with specified SQL drivers. Defaults to all that were found with autodetection. --with-pgsql Build with PostgreSQL support (requires pgsql-devel, libpq-dev or similar package) --with-MySQL Build with MySQL support (requires mysql-devel, libmysqlclient15-dev or similar package) --with-SQLite Build with SQLite3 driver support (requires sqlite-devel, libsqlite3-dev or similar package) Authentication Backend Options The basic backends are built if the system is detected to support them: --with-shadow Build with shadow password support --with-pam Build with PAM support --with-nss Build with NSS support --with-sia Build with Tru64 SIA support --with-bsdauth Build with BSD authentication support (if supported by your OS) Some backends require extra libraries and are not necessarily wanted, so they are built only if specifically enabled: --with-sql Build with generic SQL support (drivers are enabled separately) --with-ldap Build with LDAP support (requires openldap-devel, libldap2-dev or similar package) --with-gssapi Build with GSSAPI authentication support (requires krb5-devel, libkrb5-dev or similar package) --with-vpopmail Build with vpopmail support (requires vpopmail sources or a devel package) It's also possible to build these as plugins by giving e.g. --with-sql=plugin.
I do want IMAP, but I honestly have no idea what this section is talking about. Is this something I need?
Dynamic IMAP and POP3 Modules The mail_plugins setting lists all plugins that Dovecot is supposed to load from the mail_plugin_dir directory at program start. These plugins can do anything they want. They are only expected to contain the <plugin name>_init and <plugin name>_deinit functions which are called at startup and at exit. The plugin filename is prefixed with a number which specifies the order in which the plugins are loaded. This is important if one plugin depends on another.
