While you are completely right spamc/spamd are a better combination for
performance, there are no debugging abilities in spamc/spamd where as
there are many debugging functionalities in the standalone spamassassin

The purpose of my example was to help troubleshoot a slow spamassassin
installation, not to provide a working solution to the problem.

I stand by the fact that running spamassassin with the -D comamndline
switch is an effective method of testing spamassassin and the various
checks that SA performs.
