If people would use my easy-to-install ClamAV + SA installation package, 
they wouldn't be asking this question over and over again.

The end of the install.sh script tells you to do this lot:

  echo 'Now go and find your init.pre file, which may well be in the'
  echo '/etc/mail/spamassassin directory. You need to save a copy of'
  echo 'your old init.pre file and rename the v310.pre file to init.pre'
  echo 'You then need to edit the new init.pre file and uncomment'
  echo '(remove the #) the loadplugin lines for DCC and Razor2.'

(You don't actually need to rename it I discovered recently. Working 
with v310.pre is just fine)

echo 'Also add these lines to the end of it:'
echo 'loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry'
echo 'loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::SPF'
echo 'loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::URIDNSBL'

Just fixing the comments for DCC and Razor2 is not enough, you will miss 
3 more plugins, at least 1 of which is *very* important (URIDNSBL).

Can someone make sure this is in the wiki please? This is currently the 
most asked question.
