The binary RPM:s have fixed paths for everything and MS can't find what
it needs, you seem to have lost all rules SA provides for example.
People have had mixed results but for most it simply does not work and
it's not supported when used with MS. Isn't that enough for you?

Back out the SA RPM and install from CPAN.

# rpm -e name_of_sa_rpm
# perl -e shell -MCPAN
cpan> install Mail::SpamAssassin

It will work.
