Further, it installs socat, version 2.0, and netcat, version 0.71, to provide increased scriping capabilities to control the ClamAV daemon. Scripts and plists providing full integration with OSX are also installed. This enables log rolling and log integration with OSX and OSX Server as well as auto startup and operation.

During installation the installer automatically configures ClamAV configuration files on a fresh install or utilizes the existing configuration on upgrade. The ClamAV toolkit is installed in its default location, /usr/local/. On OSX Server it is installed in parallel with Apple's stock install.
