Best antivirus for cygwin? - was Norton antivirus and the Trojans


Apparently Norton antivirus is getting a false positive with rsync and wget.
I would really like to dump Norton AntiVirus but I have never found any AV
program to be very satisfactory.  I would like the following:
1. 64-bit compatible (if the drivers ever show up I will migrate to xp64)
2. Relatively cheap for up to 10 machines (every year I buy enough three or
five packs of Norton for about 10 or 20 bucks with rebates, uninstall the
old version and run the new version for a year.  This is much cheaper than
upgrading through the Norton web site.).
3. Auto updating.
4. Cygwin friendly

Any big successes or failures in the antivirus department for cygwin users?

(so far avast looks ok to me)
