None, zilch.. we do not tune SA at all (i compile rpms from the stock 
tar.gz distro).. moreover we add tonnes of SARE rules to it. If using a 
dedicated server for MySQL based Bayes is tuning, then yes we do tuning. 
 From that POV, we use djbdns' dnscache for the local 
caching-nameserver, which helps Net::DNS tremendously. Also thanks to 
the prolocation chaps, we rsync SURBL for local use..

I have added wiki entries for both of them quite some time back.
