after a slackware upgrade on one mail server, I get this error

Checking for SpamAssassin errors (if you use it)...
You want to use SpamAssassin but have not installed it.
at /opt/MailScanner/lib/MailScanner/ line 177
Please download and unpack it and run ./ to install it, then restart MailScanner. at /opt/MailScanner/lib/MailScanner/ line 178
I will run without SpamAssassin for now, you will not detect much spam
until you install SpamAssassin.
at /opt/MailScanner/lib/MailScanner/ line 179

......However it is already installed....

# cpan -i Mail::SpamAssassin

Mail::SpamAssassin is up to date (3.003001).

      unshift @INC, "$val/lib/perl5/site_perl/$perl_vers";
seems to be the problem, its only looking in 5.10.1, not 5.10.0 where
perl seems to look as well.
