If you don't mind fiddling with the system, you can learn to make your
own packages. Then you can just update SpamAssassin, ClamAV, etc. when
new versions get released.
It's not always the best idea to rely 100% on repositories. Sometimes
you just have to build your own stuff. It doesn't happen very often, but
it _does_ happen.
BTW, don't forget to run sa-update every once in a while. It keeps the
SpamAssassin rules fresh.
