[users] Clash of 2 SPF packages

When you do sa-update -D it runs a debug which outputs what Hugo is
seeing.

If he wants to use any of the spf plugins or rulesets he will need to
fix those problems. The are specific to CentOS 5. One possible way
round that will be to use cpan to install the required modules.

His other alternative would be to disable the spf bits which I think
are in the .pre files in /etc/mail/spamassassin (at least they are on
my 4.5 boxes).

He's also perhaps as well asking this on the spamassassin list.
