Thanks John, Yes, that'll work too.
Of course, rather than you having to modify the source code of 2 or 3 modules for every build - or me having to write a report file parser, the REAL solution is for Declude to provide at least a minimum amount of flexibility in parsing report files (or - to integrate the ClamLib and eliminate any command line needs).

The "sherpya" Clam port at oss.netfarm.it is very easy to build and use, and there are only about 10 lines of code in 2 or 3 modules where you need to add a "VirusName->" prefix before the actual name of the virus so Declude can pick it up in the report file. I just mod the code and recompile instead of trying to manipulate the report file. I do not use any sort of installer. I just setup the conf files, spawn a clamd process on startup, schedule a freshclam run periodically, and point Declude to the clamdscan scanner. I also grab the MSRBL Images spam database for use with Clam. The clamd/clamdscan combo are very light and fast. Take care!
