This is per child, as I wrote.

Do you have any additional rulesets like those SARE rules installed? If so, how many/what total size?

SA3 really explodes in size when more rules are given.
Without additional rulesets, i.e. just with the rules SA 3.0 ships with, I have about 20M of memory usage by spampd (spamassassin based SMTP/LMTP proxy). With an additional 460k of rules (some SARE, some others), this shoots up to 40M.
With 5M of additional rules, it consumes like 170M of memory.

So I would guess that you use additional rulesets totalling about 10-15M in size. Am I right?

If so, try removing the biggest rulesets installed, probably something like SARE BigEvil or the like.
