my virus.scanners.conf has:

clamav          /usr/lib/MailScanner/clamav-wrapper     /usr/local
clamd           /bin/false                              /usr/local
clamavmodule    /bin/false                              /tmp

which seems ok to me, clam is installed under /usr/local. The hosts are 
bog standard CentOS 4.6.
