For Debian, I test built klamav against the new clamav and it FTBFS.  Fedora 
had a patch that at least lets it build.  For Ubuntu I also built all the 
others that exist in Ubuntu (all less clamcour and sylpheed-claws) and they 
all FTBFS, so I expect they'll all need patching due to the changes in 
clamav.  The errors were all similar to:

error: 'struct cl_limits' has no member named 'maxratio'

I can provide links to Ubuntu i386 or amd64 build logs if anyone is 
interested.  The Fedora patch for klamav can be found at:


if anyone wants it for reference.  Since Fedora 9 is close to release with 
clamav 0.93, I'd expect they have patches for other packages that they 
support, but I only looked at klamav
