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

It's not actually a bug in my script really. You need to add 
/usr/local/lib to your /etc/ file so that it knows to look for 
libraries in /usr/local/lib. Then Mail::ClamAV will be able to work.

As for the other problem, upgrade MailScanner to my latest beta and the 
output goes away. It's quite harmless, feel free to ignore it.
