[Mimedefang] No more X-Spam-Score?

I'm using Mimedefang/Spamassassin for spam.  I'm also using procmail to 
filter on mimedefang's X-Spam-Score header. This has been working fine until 
recently (I'm not certain exactly when). Mimedefang is no longer putting an 
X-Spam-Score into the headers. Instead I'm getting this:

X-Spam-Score:  ()

Mimedefang is scanning and scoring the email. The same email that had the 
X-Spam-Score I pasted above also contained the following Spam Report:

Content analysis details:   (20.6 points, 5.0 required)

 0.1 RDNS_DYNAMIC           Delivered to trusted network by host with
                            dynamic-looking rDNS
 3.0 MIME_CHARSET_FARAWAY   MIME character set indicates foreign language

I used to get stuff like the following for X-Spam-Score:


I haven't changed any config files for Mimedefang or spamassassin. Where 
should I look to try to figure out why I'm not getting a X-Spam-Score now?
