/etc/sysconfig/spamass-milter is an optional file.  You can override

The redhat.rc script expects spamass-milter to be in
/usr/sbin/spamass-milter, but doesn't ensure that /usr/sbin is in the
PATH.  That means when it comes time to start it with the daemon
command, it can fail.  Try this patch:

Index: spamass-milter-redhat.rc
RCS file: /cvsroot/spamass-milt/spamass-milt/contrib/spamass-milter-redhat.rc,v
retrieving revision 1.3
diff -u -r1.3 spamass-milter-redhat.rc

 [ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] && exit 0
 [ -x /usr/sbin/spamass-milter ] || exit 0

This rc script is intended to be used within an rpm-built package, so
if you built and installed it manually, you may have to replace
/usr/sbin with /usr/local/sbin (on lines 28 and 29).
