As it turns out, there is a fair bit of configuration necessary to get
DCC, pyzor and Razor2 working with Amavisd-new and Postfix. None of
which is particularly well documented. What documentation exists is
found in the form of tutorials. These are often out-of-date; or assume
too much prior knowledge; or are specific to a different OS to a
degree that makes using the examples fraught with hazards.
For FreeBSD one begins, after installing the requisite packages, by
registering ones instance using razor-admin. Then, to actually get
things to work, one must either edit Spamassassin's v310.pre file and
uncomment the loadplugins instructions for the necessary bits or add
those instructions to the top of local.cf:
# DCC is disabled here because it is not open source. See the DCC
# license for more details.
# Pyzor - perform Pyzor message checks.
# Razor2 - perform Razor2 message checks.
Then one has to enable these things in local.cf itself.
# pyzor_options --homedir /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/pyzor

and razor2 correctly. But after these changes avavisd and
spamassassin seems to be working, at least to some degree at the
