I dropped into /etc/mail/spamassassin and ran "spamassasin --lint" and here's the output:

[12246] warn: plugin: failed to parse plugin (from @INC): Can't locate Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl) at (eval 68) line 1.
[12246] warn: plugin: failed to create instance of plugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::KAM: Can't locate object method "new" via package "Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::KAM" at (eval 69) line 1.

It appears to be looking for a corresponding .pm file. Anyone have this issue?
