The package build accidentally left a bunch of temporary files in
/var/tmp. You can ignore them. The installation under
/usr/lib/MailScanner/utils is entirely intentional. This is to work
round some very nasty interactions between perl and rpm.

I will get rid of the temporary files before the next stable release.
