	Then you have never run sa-update, have you? /usr/share/spamassassin
	is where the install time released rules are placed. LOCAL_STATE_DIR
	is the where updated rules are placed by sa-update. 

Actually, I did - sa-update --updatedir /usr/share/spamassassin.
I did it this way since a previous post stated the following:

Are you now saying mimedefang uses both /var/lib/spamassassin and
