Enable clamdscan instead clamscan

While we’re on the subject of ClamAV, Mail::ClamAV has been obsolete for aeons and really should be excised from MailScanner v5 future builds.

Changes to install script, virus scanners conf, and SweepViruses.pm (and maybe a few other places).

Do not use the wrapper if you have the clam daemon installed. Use clamd in your config.

I have MailScanner 4.84.3, clamav 0.99 and spamassassin 3.3.1 and I'm trying to block office files with macros. I already enable the "OLE2BlockMacros" in clamd.conf and I tested with the clamdscan. The file was marked as infected. However, my mailscanner clamav wrapper is using clamscan and if I scan the file with it, the file is marked as clean. I'm trying to change the wrapper to use clamdscan instead. Can someone help me with it?
