As others have mentioned your version is really old. To easily get up
to date you can use the packages from OpenCSW, we have current
versions of MailScanner, ClamAV and SpamAssassin.

You can install all of the above including all needed dependencies
with a single command:

# pkgutil --install mailscanner spamassassin clamav
