I think the clam rpm needs a symlink creation added to the %post section. Here
is a quote from the clam list;

Over on the clamav-users mailing list, Edwin T�r�k says:

"Make sure there is a symlink /usr/lib64/libclamunrar_iface.so ->
/usr/lib64/libclamunrar_iface.so.6, run ldconfig again if necessary."

It'll be a while before I can test this.
