I just changed the clamav spec file, i added a very ugly fix which puts the
.so files in the clamav package instead of in the clamav-devel package. This
should make it possible for clamd to load the iface/unrar libraries..

Packagers/clamav experts: i don't know much about clamav so better fixes are
appreciated :-) If possible i'll try to figure out the clamd code tomorrow.
