I am working some more off your guide.

What is clamav-devel need for?

In the userid check:

# cat /etc/passwd | grep "amavis\|clamav"

I get the clamav userid as clam, not clamav. Same way with the group 
being clam, not clamav and neither are added to the amavis group. So 
what to do? Am I doing something wrong or has clamav changed so that 
your howto needs updating?
