Couple of things for the next version

Hi all,

Just an FYI, found a couple of minor issues...

In 4.11-1, there is a problem with the antivir-wrapper shell script, which makes your cron attempt to use the generic update script each time it runs -- at least it did on my system.  Not a biggie, but may help save some confusion.  The variable definitions were in perl style, which didn't work with #!/bin/sh.  :)

Fix:  (Your distribution may vary.) In /usr/lib/MailScanner/antivir-wrapper


Also, one other thing to note.  The  mcafee-autoupdate  script requires the Net::FTP perl module to be installed.  This isn't mentioned much of anywhere else, so arguably perhaps the MailScanner module should list this as a pre-requisite, especially if McAfee is to be used and autoupdated?  It seems the McAfee script is the only autoupdate script requiring this, but it's important to note.  Also, there is no "update failed" log entry generated or any other indication that the autoupdate failed.

Hope this helps someone.
