Well, there's (at least) one additional monkey wrench in this: 

recently we revamped clamav in EPEL. 
We need to fix up amavisd-new to handle the new clamav. 

So, if you could modify the package for the new clamav that would be
outstanding. ;) 

Additionally, if we can get one of the amavisd-new maintainers to offer
to mentor you, we can sponsor you that way. See:

Hope that helps.
