One option might be the snap. We build for x86, x86_64, armhf and
aarch64, and will run on a Pi 2/3 but not a Pi Zero or 1.

sudo apt install snapd
snap install offlineimap

As it's a confined snap, it will look for .offlineimaprc in

I publish builds soon after the releases are done.  (but am happy to
hand the snap over to upstream if they would prefer).
