You can fix that with chmod:

  chmod 744 adcomplain.pl

and move adcomplain.pl to one of the dirs in your PATH.  You may need
to "rehash" for it to take effect, depending on the shell you use.

... Assuming adcomplain.pl is smart enough to recognize forged sender
addresses.  If it's not smart enough, you'll end up reporting
forgeries to the ISPs of innocent bystanders.  I don't know if
adcomplain is smart enough; don't know, never used it.  Spamcop isn't
tricked by forgeries.

If adcomplain is smart enough, then it has one advantage over
Spamcop.  You can report viruses, which Spamcop doesn't allow.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
