My clamd is located in /usr/local/sbin.  It is NOT in /usr/local

I stated in my original email that I had the following line...

Virus Scanners = clamd trend f-prot bitdefender

I'm running four virus scanners (this is a test system).  For some 
reason MailScanner finds clamavmodule but not clamd.  It also finds the 
other 3 scanners without problems.
