I don't think you need to build postfix from source to use cyrus-imap
(i suspect you need to look carefully at the sasl authentication), but
if you insist, i suggest to use the debian sources and build a debian
package. Anyway, to do what you ask, i think you need to look at the
"equivs" package...
