I've updated clamav to the new upstream release (security vulnerability
in the protocol code for freshclam) and fixed a packaging error, which
prevented building the daemon side clamd and clamdscan.
Thanks to U.-D. Braumann.

Solution: Update to 0.88.2-1

Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for Unix. The main purpose of
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment
scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded
daemon, a commandline scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via
Internet. The programs are based on a shared library distributed with
the Clam AntiVirus package, which you can use in your own software.
