During install of this package on debian jessie I got the following error:

Can't open /etc/freshclam.conf: No such file or directory.

The freshclam.conf file resides in /etc/clamav.

I set a symbolic link

ln -s /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf /etc/freshclam.conf

and it appears to work.

Just wanted to let you know.
