You're using perl-5.005.03 as bundled with FreeBSD, and consequently
an older version of the File::Spec module.  That's something that
keeps popping up in various places.

You can tell what version of File::Spec you're using by:

    % perl -MFile::Spec -e 'print "$File::Spec::VERSION\n";'

I can tell you that spamassassin works without complaint using version
0.82 (as bundled with perl-5.6.1) or version 0.83 (as bundled with

You can install the devel/p5-File-Spec port to get version 0.82 for
the bundled perl, which should sort things out for you.
