Yes, that's fine.. when you run spamassassin --lint, a new perl instance gets
invoked, and SA has to parse all of it's configuration files from scratch. This
adds a lot of overhead compared to scanning a message with a running instance of SA.
For example, my SA 2.64 setup with DNS/Razor/DCC/SpamCopURI/bayes enabled has
time spamassassin --lint
Scanning a message in MailScanner is slightly faster than using spamc, but this
is the closes you can simulate using the command line tools: (spamd started as
time spamc <bingo.eml
time spamc <drugspam.eml
