As far as I understand, that won't work with clamav-devel.
RUN_DEPENDS=	clamav>=0.94.2:${PORTSDIR}/security/clamav
makes a port depend not on installed file but on specific package,
so clamav-devel will likely not match this rule. I think there's
no need in such strict dependency, as clamav 0.94.2 is in the tree
for 3 months already.
