I jus ttalked to Scott on irc and he noted that the engine update (which we are talking about here) is not a simple binary piece of code, but it requires a full recompile by the user, that means the user has to download and install all build-deps for this procedure to work. After that it will install a new version of klamav.

I can see this is unwanted and it should be solved by a volatile/security repository which is default enabled in all setups.

We migh want to add a popup/check when klamav is installed if those are enabled.
