so I have /etc/tmpfiles.d/clamd.amavisd.conf with content
d /var/run/clamd.amavisd 0755 amavis amavis -

the process owner name and group name are amavis
this is not quite what you specified - which should it be?

My real head scratch problem is that running clamd from a cli works 
Trying to get systemd (via systemctl start clamd at amavisd.service) brings 
it up but after 1 second removes the pid file and shuts down. set up 
clamd via the service file to use --debug and get nothing helpful
Trying to debug this systemd stuff seems impossible
