[Mimedefang] Revisting the old temp fail problem

Howdy all.  Long time no speak.  I set up a brand new SMP box running RH9 
recently.  I've got the latest greatest Sendmail, MD, and SA (stable 
release) installed and configured.  I started sending mail for one of 
my temporarily co-located domains to this box this afternoon.  I'm already 
running into the same old temp failing problem I had last Spring that I 
never resolved.  I didn't copy over the mimedefang-filter from the older 
box but I did copy some of my changes out of it by hand.  Nothing else is 
the same about these boxes.  The errors I'm seeing are below:

This box has only been accepting mail since this afternoon and already I 
have 52 delivery failures like this one.  All of them as destined for the 
same local user.  I don't know why this keeps happening but I'd sure like 
to find a fix for it.  $SALocalTestsOnly is undefined.  I've been out of 
the MD loop so long I hope it's still used.  

Sendmail 8.12.10
MIMEDefang 2.39
SpamAssassin 2.60
Razor 2.36
Pyzor 0.4.0
(not that the last two matter because I'm not calling them yet)

Any insight into this would be much appreciated.  I can send my 
mimedefang-filter to however wants it.  Ditto for the mdefang-* 
directories.  Anything I got that you need, just ask. :)
