In the most recent version(s?) the first parameter to the -wrapper and
-autoupdate script is the path to the virus scanner's installation
directory. So you would need to do
/usr/lib/MailScanner/sophos-wrapper /usr/local/Sophos /path/to/virus
/usr/lib/MailScanner/f-prot-wrapper /usr/local/f-prot /path/to/virus
