The script seems to check if you are running the one included in the tarball.
It probably didn't install it again since it thought it was installed.
I have been installing from the tarball since 3.0.0, and have never had a problem.
If you need the spamassassin tarball it is already in the main clam-sa tarball
as that is where it is installed from.

Try installing in a clean environment with the clam-sa tarball if you aren't
sure you want to trust it. You can use a vmware image or some other
virtualization product to play with this.
