My package will install ClamAV under /usr/local, which is where it 
installs by default from source. So if that is where your ClamAV is 
installed, just go ahead and install it over the top. If it isn't where 
it is installed, either delete the RPM (if that's how you installed it) 
or delete the clamscan, freshclam, clamd files (/usr/bin?) and the 
libclam files which may be in /usr/lib. Then install my package.

Worth trying to delete as much as possible of one installation before 
trying another, if they are installing into different places.

The ClamAV installation in my package is pretty much the same as a 
manual installation. The SpamAssassin installation in my package is 
pretty much the same as a CPAN installation..
