I was facing the same problem a couple of months back. You could try
doing this..

cd /usr/share/spamassassin/
ln -s /etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre .
service MailScanner restart

If required replace /usr/share/spamassassin/ in the first command with
the value of 'SpamAssassin Local Rules Dir' OR 'SpamAssassin Default
Rules Dir' from MailScanner.conf
