Check your /usr/local/Sophos/lib directory to ensure that the links are
pointing to the right (latest) versions of the library in there. Sounds
like sweep is using a different version to SAVI.
When you built Perl-SAVI did you remember to make the mods to Makefile.PL?
Is your Sophos installation done with my Sophos.install script?
