OK, so I'm an idiot!!! arrgh! I started comparing every file and every 
directory for all of the anti-spam stuff and guess what I found? On the 
64bit system sample-spam.txt had 0 bytes. Well, I suppose everything was 
working just as it should have been. That file on the 32 bit system has 
a date of March 16 2010, so I didn't put that text in there. Anyway, 
after adding in the spam text on the 64 bit system... it all works.

Why is it so often that the most obvious is the hardest  to find? And 
why is this a 0 byte file instead of just not being there at all?

On the 32bit system, spamassassin was installed from base.
On the 64bit system, spamassassin was installed from anaconda during 
full server installation.
