Yes. You should do that with every software available as a port.

Well in case of MailScanner: Mea culpa once again. I will try to produce an up-to-date version today.

So long ago. Let me search my memory. :-) At that time the module required threaded perl to work. I am not sure whether or not this was a perl or a clamav requirement. Recompiling perl with threaded support helped but personally gave me other problems so I always went for the command-line version. If others say it works with the non-threaded version now things might have changed. I will give it a try (maybe this afternoon). Are you "only" getting the warning in pkg-message? If so I would guess it is just an outdated warning. 

Kind regards,
