I would just rename the amd64-borbfld-freebsd6.2-<rootname> to 
<rootname> and see clamav works after that.  If it does then it is 
just a problem in the install part of the port which the maintainer 
will probably fix after the port freeze is over. You could either 
submit a pr (see ) or shoot an 
email to the maintainer.
