I'd suppose version of SA to be more important than MS:-).
IIRC you should just pop the .pm file into the SA plugin directory
("locate SpamAssassin|grep Plugin" or similar), and the .cf where you
put it. Should be fine.
If this has changed from how older version did it, I wouldn't know.
But basically... if spamassassin finds it, so will likely MailScanner.
