MailScanner not seeing AVG 7 installed

CentOS 4.2 running MailScanner 4.53.8.
Installed avglinux-7.1-23_avi0672.rpm on the machine and I am able to run avgscan ok:
[root at bouncy ~]# avgscan
AVG7 Anti-Virus command line scanner
Copyright (c) 2006 GRISOFT, s.r.o.
Program version 7.1.28, engine 386
Virus Database: Version 268.10.4/401  2006-07-26
License type is FULL for SERVER.
Expiration day: 29. 8. 2007

MailScanner though does not seem to know it is available.  
When I run a MailScanner --lint I get this:
MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = bitdefender avg f-prot clamav"
Found these virus scanners installed: bitdefender, f-prot, clamavmodule
[root at bouncy MailScanner]# find / -name avgscan

I see in the virus.scanners.conf it is looking at /usr/local for avg:
avg             /usr/lib/MailScanner/avg-wrapper        /usr/local
Is it ok to change this and will upgrades to newer versions of MailScanner wipe this out?
Thanks in advance.
