I use clamdwatch by Mike Cathey. But, it just makes sure 
clamd is still alive and scanning; it doesn't make sure 
it's "checking emails".  But it might be good enough.
What I do for extra safety is have mimedefang alert me
if a clam scan fails.

Mimedefang should find clamav on its own, without editing
the source code.  At least, it has always done so here.
