Installation instructions" (amavis.html) and in section 2.4.10 you will see the
links to the metalab mirror for linux compression tools. There you will find
arc, unrar, unarj, an old version of lha with probably (99%) won't work, zoo, 
and the linux diff for zoo. 

Have you started looking into the perl module dependicies yet? good luck, one
of the Archieve modules is broke, and one hasn't been available for a while.
You'll have to look at amavis-faq.php3 to find versions of these that work.

I don't know if you could apt-get most of these files, atleast the perl modules.

If you have any other dependence issues with it, email me, or see me thursday,
I'm the guy who walks in at around 8:45-9pm... kinda late...

Amavis is <MA +15> a real fucking bastard </MA +15> to setup, or maybe I'm 
just very dumb ?;-{. I'm currently running amavis-perl11, after trying to get 
the lastest snapshot going for four weeks with no luck, I got amavis-perl 
running in a couple of hours.
