Isn't this just a force upgrade? Amavisd-new thinks it's the latest 
version, at amavisd-new-2.3.1,1.  Or would this do the rebuild?

Wait...duh...manpage says it will *also* do a rebuild.  Second 
question; should this be done just to amavisd-new or also to PERL?  And 
is there a way to get all the subsequent modules to rebuild that depend 
on PERL afterwards again, all the p5*?

I'm CCing this also to the list to try to get some further responses; 
I'm beginning to wonder if I've somehow become persona non-grata on it. 
  You're the only one who's tried suggesting something to help me out so 
far! :-)
