      The <mailscanner_etc>/spam.assassin.prefs.conf will not be
      read directly
      by MailScanner, the <sa_site_path>/ will be
      read by
      SpamAssassin as part of its normal initialisation.

      <mailscanner_etc>/spam.assassin.prefs.conf is the real file?
      <sa_site_path>/ is the real file?

      I prefer the first one as it makes the installation a lot
      easier to do

I would prefer the first one. Mostly because we have been used to it till
now. Any change might lead to a considerable amount of confusion amongst
the existing users.
