I am running an older version of the engine, and it seems fine.  I know that
someone else on campus here had issues with shared libraries.

I'm running slackware 9.0/kernel 2.4.21 and slackware 8.0/kernel 2.4.18 with
% uvscan --version
Virus Scan for Linux v4.16.0
Copyright (c) 1992-2001 Networks Associates Technology Inc. All rights reserved.
(408) 988-3832  LICENSED COPY - Nov 13 2001

Scan engine v4.1.60 for Linux.
Virus data file v4276 created Jul 09 2003

% ldd `which uvscan` => /usr/local/lib/ (0x40015000) => /usr/i386-slackware-linux/lib/ (0x401ff000) => /lib/ (0x40240000) => /lib/ (0x40263000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

Our (recently installed) mailserver with Mailscanner is running the Solaris
version.  I have been doing filesystem scans with the linux one though.
