I found this problem the other way around. I installed mailscanner and
Sophos using the mailscanner script. I then tried to enable intercheck and
use sophos generally on the machine. intercheck wouldn't start and some
incantations of sweep used an old library or engine or something. I think
the confusion comes from not using the lib and sav directories in the way
sophos intend?
