First of all, I appreciate the work.

I prefer to install the empty db package, and have freshclam download
the initial database.  I didn't see a db-empty package in your spec
file.  I had some issues where after updating clamav, freshclam named
the updated db files differently than came in the db package, and I
ended up with clam complaining about having two databases.
Odd. Can you duplicate it/provide any output? 

I'm not sure how usefull a empty db is, but patches welcome... 

I know this is not from your spec file, but, it shows what I was writing about

# rpm -q -l -p clamav-data-0.96.5-1301el5.x86_64.rpm

# ls -l /var/lib/clamav/
total 67440

The file extensions are different, why this is, I do not know.   IMHO it's nice to have the option of not having RPM mess with the database, the "-empty" package is a way to do that.  If you are updating clamav, then chances are the db on disk is newer than the one in the updated RPM that is being installed. The database included with the RPM is also most likely out-of-date by the time the RPM is released, so, personally, I see more value in a database installed via freshclam, than one installed via the package.

My take from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=573191 was to
add --disable-llvm to the build for EL5, since AFAIK the EL5 SELinux
package doesn't have the clamd_use_jit boolean (I haven't checked
Good catch. Fixed.
