MailScanner ANNOUNCE: Revision to 4.55

I'm running Gentoo Linux w/ Postfix and MailScanner 4.55.6.

I just tried installing version 4.55.10 (I've been running 4.55.6).
After installing it via the script, postfix would generate
the following error: "postfix: Process did not exit cleanly, returned
255 with signal 0".  

Postfix worked when it ran without MailScanner.  I verified the
permissions on the directories and everything looked good.  I played
with it a bit but couldn't get it work.

I then linked back to the old version and everything worked again.

P.S. Sorry about my previous post.  I was interrupted and didn't realize
I hadn't update the subject.

The author of the Sys::Syslog perl module has withdrawn it due to
problems including compatibility issues with some Linux distributions. 
The most obvious effect is that the "make test" step may hang part-way
through the tests.

As a result, I have had no alternative other than to reluctantly publish
a revision of the latest stable release of MailScanner.

If you had problems installing 4.55.9 (notably on some CentOS systems)
then download and upgrade to 4.55.10.

Download as usual from

Note that if you had no problems installing 4.55.9, there is no reason
to upgrade to 4.55.10.

Sorry for this forced re-release.
