[CentOS] new clamav update miss 'clamav' user/group creation/update

Hi folks,

Just updating clamav 'bundle' from old 'clamav-server' (i think the just
previous) and i noticed that the 'clamav' user/group for this pkg is not created
by default by the rpm pkg.

At the same time, the /var/log/clamav is not updated/created with clamav.clamav
ownership,

Don't know if it is my actual config (previous one untouched anyway), but this
is what i did to get it up and running in a CentOs 4.3 host

Thanks for your ideas

Jose
