No, I don't think you missed a step... That is exactly why you got an
rpmnew file, and further, that is exactly what you are supposed to do:
Check the differences, make an educated guess as to what you should
have and make the necessary changes.

The MailScanner RPM install is done by running the script
from the tar-ball ... that contain all the necessary rpms... which
will then be built/installed as needed. You wouldn't have gotten an
rpmnew file if you hadn't;-)
