installation problem

Hi,
I just tried to install spamassassin: everything proceeded normally,
AFAIK, but the basic "spamassassin -t' on the provided sample fails
because no rules are found (line 400, which looks to my untutored eye
like an all-purpose error-spitter). sa-update appears to run, and
exits silently. There is a rules directory under the the directory
where I ran the installation, and also under usr/pkg/share, and they
are both populated with files which look relevant.

I tweaked the script so as not to require rules, and it ran and
produced output.

NetBSD 4.01, working as root. What is amiss?
