There's nothing wrong with the RPM if you want to use SA standalone but
it will not work with MailScanner, all paths will be screwed up and MS
will not find stuff. That's why it's OK to use SRPM because that's built
for your system.

I would recommend CPAN, I use that on Solaris also. Extremely simple:

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

Of course, remove the RPM first.

--Unix lovers do it in the Sun

Sun Fire V210, Solaris 9, Sendmail 8.12.10, MailScanner 4.25-14,
SpamAssassin 2.61 + DCC 1.2.21, ClamAV 0.65 + GMP
