cool. thanks for the feedback. just for the archives, I noticed this
morning SA wasn't able to update it's bayes db. I'm not really sure why,
but I had to change the OPTIONS line in /etc/default/spamassassin to
specify that spamd should run as user mail. While I was at it, I dropped
the -c (create user_prefs per user), so that file looks like this:

ENABLED=1 	# turn on spamd
OPTIONS="-m 10 -u mail"

yet even after that my mutt macros to '| spamassassin -r' &etc were 
updating the bayes_* files in my ~/.spamassassin/ dir.. I guess because 
I already had the user_prefs file.. adding the same bayes_path setting 
to my ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs that I had put in 
/etc/spamassassin/local.cf finished the conversion to using a site-wide 
spamd/bayes db (i hope).

my ~/.spamassassin/auto_whitelist file is still being used privately

hope it's of interest.
