I know that when I upgraded to SpamAssassin 2.63 from 2.61,
MailScanner could not find SpamAssassin.

MailScanner was looking in '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Mail' for
the SpamAssassin directory and couldn't find it because it was in
'/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/Mail'. So I just symlinked it and everything
worked great after that. (It might have been the other way around, I
can't quite recall.)
