SURBL / URIBL not triggered in SA

Hi.  I've done quite a bit of searching on this, including in the archives
for this mail list and while I've seen numerous mentions, I have yet to
find a solution.

All of the DNS RBL checks in both MailScanner and SpamAssassin get
triggered when appropriate, but the only "URI" that gets triggered is the
"URI_REDIRECT".  There is no SURBL even when I send an email through
containing in the body of the message:
(without the -MUNGED)

I am using MailScanner 4.38.9 and SpamAssassin 3.0.2

I have installed the latest Net::DNS perl module from CPAN and also
installed the tar files from the latest "install-Clam-SA.tar"

In /etc/mail/spamassassin, there is an init.pre that calls the URI plugin
and a symlink which points to
/etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf which, for the most part, is the
same as the default shipped with MailScanner.

Any ideas?
