Ok, I didn't test the milter part myself so it's just unchanged from
the last package (not made by me). Your feedback is greatly
appreciated since I didn't get any other reports about the milter part
during testing. I will simply do what you did and release the package
tomorrow with your change.

If you or someone else has ideas on how to improve the milter script
please contact me.

It's common that they change/add to the format so that's pretty
normal. Did you notice that the package now installs the database
files in /var/opt/csw/clamav/db? You're of course free to use any dir
you want by setting it in the config files.

It's great to know that the milter works. :-)

Thank you for reporting bugs. Expect an official release tomorrow.
