MailScanner 4 doesn't live in /usr/local/MailScanner by default any more. I
would try the RPM route and see how you get on. It will install MailScanner
into /usr/sbin, /usr/lib/MailScanner and /etc/MailScanner. But it installs
all the required Perl modules first, which will definitely save you time.
