It would be rather painless to cut the chunk of the script out where it
defines all of the constants and put it in a seperate config file which
is then sourced by the main file. Again, my experience is with the
shell script version, not the perl version. I do not know how easy this
would be with the perl version.

I disagree. Move the configuration out to a separate file
(/etc/sysconfig/amavis or /etc/amavis.conf for example). Then one
amavis package can handle any of the virus scanners that the current
script works with. The configure script will have to be hacked, but on
the surface that doesn't appear very complicated.

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying here. We only use sweep to scan
incoming mail, we don't use amavisd on the mail server. Now the samba
server, that's a different story. amavisd is running on the samba
server as well as a cron'd sweep process (just in case). Finally SAV on
each of the clients. Got the wagons circled up :)
