Those changes are there.  When I run autoupdate here is what is returned.

[root at yoda mcafee]# ./autoupdate

A target has not been specified for scanning!


The tar is copied and extracted to 20020208 but they're not being moved over to the DAT directory.

One would expect, but who knows? Here is what you have to change to get this to work (from a message on this list on 15 Jan from Lawrence E. Bartash -- gotta give credit where credit is due):

OK I got this one fixed.
Taking braces out does absolutely nothing.
I changed the perl calls to system calls temporarily and noticed that $DATlink had a trailing / on it. Very bad, perl doesn't barf on this! :-( therefore the real fix is on line 39
<my($DATlink) = "$mcafeeroot/dat/";
>my($DATlink) = "$mcafeeroot/dat";

also line 123 needs to be changed
<print "DATDir\n";
>print "DATdir\n";
