Correct setting for ClamAV...

I just updated MailScanner and ClamAV and noticed a slight discrepency
in the instructions.  After running upgrade_MailScanner it printed the

Important Note
Your setting for 'Monitors for ClamAV Updates' is broken.
It should look like this (unless your ClamAV is installed
somewhere else)
Monitors for ClamAV Updates = /usr/local/share/clamav/*.inc/*
(watch the linewrap)

In the MailScanner.conf.rpmnew file however it had the following line:
  Monitors for ClamAV Updates = /usr/local/share/clamav/*.cld
(again, it's probably wrapped)

I went w/the rpmnew setting as I have cld & cvd files, but no *.inc

Is that the correct thing to do?  If so, please correct the
upgrade_MailScanner program so the warning is output correctly.  

If not, I guess the default MailScanner.conf file needs to be corrected.

Thanks much...
