True64 Unix changes to check_mailscanner

Your mileage may vary, but I had to make a few changes to your script to get
it to go in my Tru64 test box.
Specifically, the locations of awk and grep, and the format of the ps | grep
construct.  Searching for $virusdir$config rather than $virusdir$process
yielded better results for me.  Otherwise, it always started mailscanner,
already running or not.

Attached herein.
