If you run the script as-is, you don't have to do anything for it to 
kick into action (as it creates a cf file in /etc/mail/spamassassin).  
It will default to an SA score of 4 and you should see hits for 
JKF_ANTI_PHISH in your maillog.  That's what I did and I made sure SA is 
using it with the following command:
spamassassin --lint -D 2>&1 | grep jkf
[26088] dbg: config: read file 

So far, though, I haven't had any hits in about 4 hours.
