FWIW I have successfully installed both mailscanner and  
spamassassin/clamav from your tarballs on FC10 32-bit (at least  
MailScanner --lint is happy). But I haven't managed on FC10 64-bit yet:  
all goes smoothly with MailScanner, but the Mail-ClamAV fails to install.  
Oddly everything els
e compiles and installs fine, it's just that one module: to my  
inexperienced eye it seems to be installing the compiled module into  
/tmp/Mail-ClamAV-022/, which presumably then gets deleted.

Installing /tmp/Mail-ClamAV-0.22/blib/arch/auto/Mail/ClamAV/ClamAV.bs
Writing /tmp/Mail-ClamAV-0.22/blib/arch/auto/Mail/ClamAV/.packlist
make[1]: Leaving directory  

The Mail-ClamAV test all fail, and MailScanner --lint asks where  
clamavmodule is (it isn't installed anywhere).

Don't worry too much about this, as I'm going to investigate clamd now,  
but thought it might be of interest given your packaging problems...

Shout if you'd like me to run any additional tests on my FC10 x86_64  
machine for diagnosis purposes.
