[users] clamav pkg and clamd.conf

Hi

I installed the package clamav[1] and in the logwatch there is a message 
that cannot find /etc/clamd.conf[2].

There is not "clamd.conf" in the package[3], only "freshclam.conf", but 
in "freshclam" makes references to "clamd.conf"[4].

 From where should come "clamd.conf"? Or should I comment out the 
reference to it in "NotifyClamd /etc/clamd.conf"?

Regards

mg.
