heads up: clamav 0.94.x end of life

Mitja Muženič
On April 15th 2010, the ClamAV have started distributing a special signature
in the virus definition files that kills older, pre-0.95 versions of ClamAV
engine. The last OpenBSD release with an affected version of ClamAV engine
was 4.5, which is not supported anymore since November 1st 2009.

Nevertheless, if you happen to run 4.5 or (gasp) even something older, it
will require some attention and/or backporting of a newer engine. Now this
is a very good opportunity to update the box instead, it will probably
require less time and effort  :)

Mitja (whose only notification was a bunch of support calls that "the mail
doesn't work")

note that "kills" == "the daemon stops running", not just "no more updates".
