That's not how the gentoo ebuild works. Gentoo installs everything from 
source, so it needs to start from the tarball rather than an rpm-type 
package, but it installs things the gentoo way in /usr/lib64, /usr/sbin 
and so on rather than using the install scripts in the tarball and 
putting things under /opt.

Indeed, it's nice to see that your tarball contains only the Mailscanner 
code, without all the perl modules that Julian used to bundle. Far more 
in keeping with the gentoo philosophy :-)

Anyway, the check_modules.sh script warns about Inline::C and 
File::ShareDir::Install (and Mail::ClamAV, but that doesn't matter as 
I'm using clamd). MailScanner --version lists Inline as an optional 
module and doesn't mention File::Sharedir::Install at all.

Should I care? MS runs quite happily without these modules.
