Hmm, it seems to me that RemiRepo offers quite recent stuff[1].

Yes, please file a bug report on <https://bugs.php.net/>.  I'm pretty
sure that there are issues with the ext/imap configuration.  However, it
seems to me that the “manual” configuration which is still done for many
extensions can't really be solved generally, and instead relying on
pkg-config appears to be the way forward.  This is unlikely to happen
for PHP 7.3, though.
