You really shouldn't be using Mail::ClamAV at all.

It has a huge memory load and performance implications.

It should have been deprecated from MailScanner years ago, and all reference to it removed.

It's best to use clamd.

I have install perl-Mail-ClamAV-0.29-2.x86_64.rpm package with --nodeps option.
Now i can see package:

# rpm -q -l -p perl-Mail-ClamAV-0.29-2.x86_64.rpm

But still in MailScanner no results:
MailScanner -v
missing Mail::ClamAV
