You are mixing 2 different clamav builds ... one is coming from Dag
Wieers' EL4 repo ... the other is coming from KBS-CentOS-Extras repo.
Dag's packages are built from the RPMForge spec file, KBS is built from
a different spec file (from Fedora Extras).

Both of these clamav builds work fine ... but they are different and
don't work well together.

Pick one repo to do clamav from ... in the other one, inside the repo
definition for that repo, do this:

exclude=clamd clamav*

That should take care of dualing repo problems for clamav.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
