spampd should add a spampd user and group, $HOME should likely be /var/lib/spampd and shell /bin/false.

it also needs openrc fixes, but it might be enough to resolve this bug here, current initrc does not work with default spampd run as mail, on shutdown "cant unlink"

but spampd still works with 3.3.2 spamassassin, needs testing with 3.4.x when its out in portage
