I noticed your easy Clam+SA install script didn't ask me if I wanted to 
install SA and it just did...  I don't really mind because that was on a 
test system, but is there still a DNS performance problem with SA 3.2.3?

I looked at patch but couldn't 
figure out if it was still needed.  If so, I guess it has to be applied 
to the installation dir and then run the install stuff (perl 
Makefile.PL; make; make test; make install)?
