Problem with install-Clam-SA's ./ script

Am running MS 4.45.4-1 with SA 3.0.4 and ClamAV 0.87 on a RHAS4 system.

Want to upgrade to SA 3.1.0 so unpacked the "install-Clam-SA" tar ball.

When did "" got:

Ignored this as not using 'clamavmodule'.=20

However when doing 'spamassassin -D' get indication that all is not well
with 3.1.0:

[10935] warn: Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Mail/SpamAssassin/ line
[10935] warn: Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string

X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.1.0 (2005-09-13) on

Have looked through the MailScanner list for clues and googled the
problem but am none the wiser. Have I missed something in the recent
flurry of MailScanner list traffic?
