McAfee likes to live in /usr/local/uvscan.  The McAfee "install-uvscan"
script puts it there be default...

# Default installation location

If you remember to override the default and have it install in
/usr/local/mcafee instead (where mailscanner expects it), then it works
just fine.  However, to avoid potential confusion for those installing
it the first time or for those that already installed mcafee in its
default location, it would be best for mailscanner to be consistent with
the mcafee default of /usr/local/uvscan.
