Hello FreeBSD Gurus!

I have installed FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE and
upgraded it to  FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p1.
I also upgraded my ports with cvsup.

I am trying to install ClamAV Milter in my system.

I think I have to do this:

1. Compile the port:
	cd /usr/ports/security/clamav
	make WITH_MILTER=yes install
	there is a problem with this port:
	it does not compile, the line 384 of
	has a problem, it requires to include
	"malloc.h" which is obsolete and is reduced
	to issue a error message saying "stdlib.h
	must be included instead.
	I changed this line to include "stdlib.h"
	and make the port again.  It installed it.

2.  Configure clamav.

	cd /usr/local/etc
	cp clamav.conf.sample clamav.conf

    I had to change line describing LocalSocket to:
	LocalSocket /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock

    and also uncomment line:

3. Modify /etc/rc.conf:

4. Upgrade virus data files:

 michelle# freshclam

5. Start clamav:
	cd /usr/local/etc/
	rc.d/ start

I checked the socked was created:

michelle# ls -la /var/log/clamav
total 38
drwxr-xr-x  2 clamav  clamav    512 Mar 10 18:25 .

-rw-r--r--  1 clamav  clamav  15402 Mar 11 03:03 freshclam.log

so far, so good.

	rc.d/ start
	rc.d/ start

	Can't talk to clamd server via /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock
	Check your entry for LocalSocket in /usr/local/etc/clamav.conf

and the system log /var/log/messages has this message:
Mar 11 03:30:39 Michelle mrspock: rc.d/ WARNING: Stale socket
/var/run/clamav/clamd.sock removed.

I cannot continue.
But, if I could, I would do this:

6. Reconfigure sendmail.

According to

I have to modify my /etc/mail/ file.
I have to include these lines:     [I'm also running spammassassin]

INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`spamassassin', `S=local:/var/run/spamass-milter.sock, F=, T=C:15m;S:4m;R:4m;E:10m')
define(`confMILTER_LOG_LEVEL', 7)

INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`clamav',`S=local:/var/run/clamav/clamd.sock, F=, T=S:4m;R:4m')dnl

Then I remake my file:
	make install

This also have a problem, it includes a lot
of blank lines in [approx. in
lines 61-90], and sendmail complains about it.
I erased them.  Sendmail did not complain anymore.

7. Restart sendmail.

	cd /etc/mail
	make restart



Can any body help me?

Is there something else I have to do?
