Just installed the patch on mailscanner-4.50.6-2 and the results are 
interesting ;-) :
# MailScanner --lint

Is that my lucky number of the day?  Did you confuse the patch with your 
lotto numbers generator? :-D

I had no error installing the patches:
# cd /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner
# patch < CustomConfig.pm.patch
patching file CustomConfig.pm
# cd /usr/sbin/
# patch < /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/usr.sbin.MailScanner.patch
patching file MailScanner

Happy birthday! :-)
