You have to do it yourself later

Doesn't matter just set Use SpamAssassin = yes once you've got it.

Don't use CPAN on an rpm based machine - its a bad idea.  The razor2-sdk
package (from razor's site) should provide what you need.

This worked fine for me on Mandrake
MailScanner rpm
SpamAssassin tar.gz
razor2 & razor2sdk rpms
pyzor (tar I think)
dcc (tar)
