After much banging of face on desk … 

- corrected installer upgrade and fresh install issues (I hope)
- tested RHEL and Debian every way I could
- moved some items from the script to the RHEL spec and Debian control files
- added RAMDISK option to RHEL and SUSE installers (was already in Debian)

If you see a Perl warning or error regarding something not being terminated after -e during the MailScanner.conf upgrade, you can ignore it as it is benign. I will create an issue on Github and we will look into how to make Perl happy or suppress that warning. 

A note about was written for each distro to make sure your server is setup with the correct packages and permissions. Other than Perl, I have removed the requirements from each distro's control files. I have added as much as I can to address items like ClamAV permission issues, SElinux permissions, apparmor settings, and  Perl module installation to Technically, you do not have to use, but you should use it unless you want to setup the whole system and every Perl module yourself. 

Still beta, but very close.
