This is the correct remedy.
In Panda IMAP, I created a new "oss" port that reflects this change. I
think that re-alpine may have done the same thing, with some extra rules
in the Alpine configure script to detect this difference.
I don't know which is more annoying: Apple picking an incompatible
location to begin with, or changing it to create an incompatibility
between Snow Leopard and all prior versions.
