Thanks.  I worked with Adam Conrad (infinity) and got a patch that takes the 
syscall numbers from GLIBC, so we don't need the hard coded list and sent that 
upstream.  That or another similar patch will be in the next clamav release, 
so I'll use that instead.  I think that'll resolve this just fine.  I'm going 
to update stable/oldstable with the current package first and then I'll do 
another round of updates in Sid.

In addition to this, there are some new file types that clamav supports that we 
don't include because we're missing build depends (I think).
