I have spamassassin and MailScanner working fine on a raq3 and I'm sure
there are plenty of people running on raq4s without problems.  There are
notes from Julian at about installing spamassassin
on a raq4.

Did you try testing spamassassin as per the spamassassin documentation?
Just copy and paste the full message inc headers of a spam message into
a file called sample-spam.txt and ditto for a non-spam message into a
file called sample-nonspam.txt and then run the following commands:

spamassassin -t < sample-spam.txt > spam.out
spamassassin -t < sample-nonspam.txt > nonspam.out

Have a look at spam.out and nonspam.out and you should see lines like
this in it.  This at least will determine whether spamassassin is
