On my system, this builds just fine.
Has anyone else seen this problem?

Otherwise, I would these days recommend you do *not* install ClamAV from 
my ClamAV+SA package, but instead remove all files and directories under 
/usr/local and /etc that mention "clam" or "Clam" in their name. Then 
download the RPMs of clamav and clamd from packages.sw.be and install 
them instead, then use "clamd" as the virus scanner and not "clamav" or 

You can list all the files and directories you need to delete with this 
find /usr/local -name '*[Cc]lam*' -print

"clamd" as the virus scanner will take a lot less memory than 
"clamavmodule" and will work a lot faster than "clamav".
