This binary distribution was built without any Windows UI. It is in discussion. You can also use clamavwin instead, a python wxWindows based package with an install.exe.
A shared libclamav will come with the next update. (Thanks to Yaakov Selkowitz). No libmilter support. exim/fetchmail/uw-imap-imapd integration pending.

Expect package updates are quite often: weekly - two weeks. The database is updated more often: daily to 3 times a day.
I've also setup an official austrian virusdb mirror.
