I know it runs fine without zephyr libs installed because I run it
without zephyr libs installed.  The only part of cyrus that needs these
libraries is notifyd, which doesn't even need to be run for cyrus to
work.  And even if you do run it, it can use several other notify
methods besides zephyr.

I'm sure that if I were to enable notifyd and configure it to use zephyr
notifications, I'd run in to problems.  But otherwise, there's no reason
to install the libraries.  Therefore, I do not believe cyrus should have
a hard dependency on zephyr libraries.
