From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru; rv: Gecko/20060210 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
Currently it have:
$ rpm -qp --requires amavisd-new-2.3.3-5.fc5.noarch.rpm |fgrep -i clam

I think it wrong. I use my own clamav configs and amavisd-new can use many another  AV tools.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -i amavisd-new-2.3.3-5.fc5.noarch.rpm
2. get deps bug

Sorry, I couldn't disagree more.  Not pulling in clamav makes as much sense as
not pulling in spamassassin.  The extra dependencies are a feature, not a bug.

There is nothing stopping you from rewriting the amavisd config files,
installing your own clamav, etc.  Adding other AV scanners is easy too (just an
edit of the amavisd config file).  I personally use BitDefender and/or AVG on
some of my systems.

Ok, may you should remove /etc/clamd.d deps and left only /usr/sbin/clamd deps?
