Have you tried compiling it like this:
./configure –without-authdaemon –with-authvchkpw –disable-root-check
This will let you compile courier-imap as root and therefore should avoid any problems with the library files.

the compiling and install goes fine, but the last stage fails
could have anything to do with my already installed courier-imap ??
it is having issues trying to link against /home/vpopmail/lib/libvpopmail.a
By default the permissions are 700 for the lib directory, and 600 for the library file.
As you are compiling courier as a non root user, you dont have permissions to the file.
As a work around, you can change the permissions of the lib dir and the library file to 777, do the compile and installation of copurier imap and then change the permissions back.
