I installed Jule's sa/clamav all-in-one package which installed the
spamassassin ruleset into /usr/share/spamassassin.  After
/etc/cron.daily/update_spamassassin ran, the rules were also found in
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.002004.  Maybe I'm just having a senior moment
here, but I can't find anywhere that tells spamassassin which ruleset to
use.  How does it know?

Do I need to keep the /usr/share/spamassassin rules around?

(BTW, I added sare and KAM rulesets to the update routine and they
worked a treat, landing in the /var/lib tree.)
