.sock file unsafe?

I'm seeing lots of these in my log files:

May  6 15:23:29 baby sm-mta[22643]: l46KNTQf022643: Milter
(spamassassin): local socket name /var/run/spamass-milter.sock unsafe

The trouble is that the file doesn't even exist:

baby log # ls /var/run/spamass-milter.sock
ls: cannot access /var/run/spamass-milter.sock: No such file or

However, I think the file it's searching for is in /var/run/milter:

baby log # ls /var/run/milter  spamass-milter.sock

Where can I change this setting so that it no longer looks for the
socket file in /var/run?  Also, in the meantime, spamassassin is not
labeling anything.  Please help.  I'm running:

baby log # emerge -pv spamassassin spamass-milter sendmail

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
