MailScanner Change

While putting together the Debian package based on Andrew Colin Kissa’s Debian build I noticed some differences from the RPM packages. In short, he was using /usr/share/MailScanner instead of the previous /usr/lib/MailScanner structure. According to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) this is the correct approach. Therefore, I am creating v4.85.2 that will incorporate this change in order to standardize the structure across all of the builds. The tarball build will retain the /opt/MailScanner/lib structure for now since /opt is essentially cowboy territory and anything goes. However, I will eventually update it. 

I will put out each build to this list in case anyone wants to test it once they are complete. Once I have all the packages completed I will update the MailScanner website.
