AFAIK, clamavmodule is deprecated and may not work correctly. You should 
use clamd.

I notice that the *.cld stuff is already in there, that's the default:
Monitors for ClamAV Updates = /usr/local/share/clamav/*.cld 

So, the change in definition format should not pose a problem.
But your update may have changed the location to the path that Steve 
lists, depending on your unknown OS/package. And that may also be the 
reason why your MS doesn't work at all, even if clamavmodule may still 
work theoretically: the binaries for clamav may have changed location.
