That's the best bet yet Saurabh, thank you!

Here's what's worked (so far)
1. follow Dag's link to install apt-get
2. apt-get update
3. apt-get install clamav
4. service clamd start
5. service clamav-milter start

...and now all the config files and freshclam seems to be as
advertised so I can get on with testing and configuring.

Thanks again Saurabh, Paul, and Alexander (and Dag!)
