I built a package on my own today so I could update the machines I
needed to.  It's a copy of the Fedora package with some minor changes to
the spec file.  I'll share the updates if that will help.  I would
rather the updates come from EPEL, than maintaining it on my own.  Had a
few problems with some of the macros (build sys difference I think),
most of the changes I had to make where pretty basic though.  It already
had a flag for building without upstart support, but didn't have the
if/endif blocks in all the right places to make building without upstart
actually work, so fixed that.  Also built with the bytecode flag set to
off (so that ClamAV gets built without llvm support), the bytecode
interpreter mode still works, but doesn't throw the SELinux error on
