Does Cyrus really have to *depend* on Zephyr, though?  It's certainly an
optional dependency upstream; I use Cyrus on FreeBSD at work and don't
have Zephyr or Hesiod installed.  Perhaps a softer dependency like
Suggests or Recommends would be more appropriate.  I'm sure a large
percentage of Cyrus using sites don't run Zephyr and would prefer not to
install it.
