I had the same problem here on my Fedora Core 3 test server:

amavisd debug
ERROR: MISSING REQUIRED BASIC MODULES:
  MIME::Decoder::BinHex
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/sbin/amavisd line 141.

cpan> install MIME::Decoder
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata
  Database was generated on Thu, 16 Dec 2004 08:03:34 GMT
MIME::Decoder is up to date.

cpan> install MIME::Decoder::BinHex
MIME::Decoder::BinHex is up to date.

perl -MExtUtils::MakeMaker -le 'print MM->parse_version($ARGV[0])'
/usr/lib/perl5
/site_perl/5.8.5/MIME/Decoder/BinHex.pm
5.415

When I tried removing the "MIME::Decoder::BinHex " entry from amavisd (line
131), I got the following errors:
