I package MailScanner for Solaris and the only thing on the optional
list I include is DBD::SQLite since you can't use the SA cache feature
otherwise. Our packages for Clam and SA pulls in some of the other
optional modules so to get a working setup you just need to install
MS, Clam and SA. That can't be too hard, can it? I would recommend
creating an empty wrapper package that pulls in what you want for a
turnkey solution if that's what you want but be careful with adding
optional things to each package. You may find that everyone has an
opinion about what optional modules are a must. :-)
