I think something like this would be good:
$ tar xvfz Mail-SpamAssassin-xxx.tar.gz
$ cd Mail-SpamAssassin-xxx
$ perl Makefile.PL
The following RBLs have certain usage restrictions. Would you like to
enable them? If unsure, say Y. (Y/N): [Y]
[... a list of RBLs, preferably with links to their policy pages ...]
so that at installation time, SA users are at least aware of the issues.
For package maintainers, you'd want a noninteractive way to build SpamAssassin
and then a post-install configuration script that asks the RBL question.
(This is easily done on Debian; not so easy with RPM-based systems that
don't allow interaction during installation.)
