I don't see why you're interested in making an extremely unwieldy
pseudo-binary package for this.  It just seems like a nightmare to
support for both packagers and users, all because DJB won't let you
distribute anything but pristine sources.

Does maildir even work without resorting to managed mounts?  Have you
considered that too?  It sounds like even if it were possible to package
qmail there would be many hurdles that would cause it to be hardly a
"drop-in" package.
