I said I'd "run in to problems", not that I'd get undefined symbols or
anything.  I didn't have the Zephyr libs installed when I *built* cyrus
and notifyd.  Thus notifyd is not liked against those libs.  Were I to
try and enable zephyr notifications, I would likely be told as much by
notifyd.

How about you simply don't link against the zephyr libraries at all?
I'm sure Zephyr sites wouldn't appreciate that, but I wonder how many of
them there are?  I'm not convinced that it's enough to make it worth it
to force all Cyrus installations to install zephyr libraries.  But of
course, that's the maintainer's call.  I'm sure you'll find somebody to
disagree with you no matter which choice you make.
