Though I've not actually used it myself, I did once look at the documentation.
I don't think you do actually need spamd, the normal way is to have procmail run spamassassin directly as a perl script. Spamc is a lightweight c-coded frontend that connects to spamd over a socket; it eliminates the overhead of restarting perl for every mail, and it also allow SA to run on a dedicated machine. The spamc/spamd combination is really intended for high traffic mail systems. I can't recall how you pass an email to the SA perl script, but google should turn it up.
