php5-mcrypt and php5-imap packages are now available for php5.2

I have finally managed to fix the problems with the installation of php5-mcrypt and php5-imap from my repository. However, it needs to be noted that the versions of those packages are 5.2.6, hence the pinning in the /etc/apt/preferences file must be done accordingly!
