I just tried to run the install script for the new clamav and
spamassassin packages and encountered a couple of errors:

The first is this:
config.status: creating clamav-config.h
config.status: executing depfiles commands
configure: WARNING:
****** WARNING:
****** You are either cross compiling to a different host or
****** you have manually disabled important configure checks.
****** Please be aware that this build may be badly broken.

I'm compiling on the target host (SSHed in), and haven't knowlingly
disabled any configure checks.

The second problem was this:
ClamAV.xs:365: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [ClamAV.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory

A problem was encountered while attempting to compile and install your 
C code. The command that failed was:

The build directory was:

To debug the problem, cd to the build directory, and inspect the output 

  at /tmp/Mail-ClamAV-0.21/blib/lib/Mail/ line 178
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at 
/tmp/Mail-ClamAV-0.21/blib/lib/Mail/ line 556.
Compilation failed in require.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
make: *** [ClamAV.inl] Error 25

It seems that it was trying to access
/tmp/Mail-ClamAV-0.21/_Inline/build/Mail/ClamAV but that directory
doesn't exist. /tmp/clamav-0.93 does exist.  Should I just try running
install from inside it again?
