The latest version available online my private website (use the
following apt-get line) does have spamassassin support. However, there
is a bug with certain combinations of perl and spamassassin that could
cause problems with the signal handling. I think perl in stable is OK, but
the recommended fix is spamassassin 2.43+patch or 2.50.

Also note that currently I am working on packaging a new version of
amavisd-new that is completely different to the current version. For the
newest version of amavis (now renamed amavisd-new):

deb http://www.microcomaustralia.com.au/debian/ unstable main

(note: I made no guarantees there will be a clean upgrade from
this version; I am still discussing these details with Henrique
who has volunteered to help with the packaging efforts).

Hope this helps.
