Default spamassassin stop working after woody to sarge update


We have a server that was installed with woody and has postfix +
amavis-new + spamassasin + clamav

Everything worked good until postfix got update with sarge packages with apt-get update and after apt-upgrade, when this happened the server stoped working at all.

After a lot of tries and several changes at config files, we decided to make
apt-get dist -upgrade, but with this didn't work, after more changes
postfix began to work, the problem is that the mails aren't marked as SPAM anymore, before the update okeverything was working fine, clamav is working fine

Current Versions (dpkg -l ):
postfix 2.1.5-9 A high-performance mail transport agent
amavisd-new 20030616p10-5 Interface between MTA and virus
spamassassin 3.0.3-2sarge1 Perl-based spam filter using text analysis
clamav 0.84-2.sarge.9 antivirus scanner for Unix

Config file amavis-new:

# @bypass_spam_checks_acl = qw( . ); # uncomment to DISABLE anti-spam code
$final_spam_destiny = D_PASS;
$spam_quarantine_to = 'spam-quarantine';
$remove_existing_spam_headers = 1;
$sa_tag_level_deflt = 4.0; # add spam info headers if at, or above that
$sa_tag2_level_deflt = 6.3; # add 'spam detected' headers at that level
$sa_kill_level_deflt = $sa_tag2_level_deflt; # triggers spam evasive
$sa_spam_subject_tag = '***SPAM*** '; # (defaults to undef, disables)
$sa_spam_modifies_subj = 1; # may be a ref to a lookup table, default is
