/etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf should exist as a file.
/etc/mail/spamassassin/mailscanner.cf is a soft-link to it, so once
you've got the file then do
ln -s /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf
to re-create the link.
It will be automatically read as it's a cf file in /etc/mail/spamassassin.
Hopefully that helps resolve your problem.
