right now it looks like after manually deinstalling/reinstalling a 
couple of the perl modules Amavis depends on (well, spamassassin) it 
builds, but there's a problem with a MIME module or something depending 
thereof :-/

I get mime_decode-1 FAILED errors in the amavis logs.

Is there a way to rebuild amavis and all the perl modules it uses
