This seems to be where my problem was ... i moved the datfiles directory
to datfiles.bak and ran mcafee-autoupdate. As you said it would, the
datfiles dir was recreated and the symlinks now exist in
/usr/local/uvscan for clean.dat, internet.dat, names.dat and scan.dat.

Thank you for clearing this up. I'm still puzzled as to why they weren't
created when I first ran the script, but it seems to be ok now.
