removed a trailing dot element from @INC, as a workaround for a perl vulnerability CVE-2016-1238 (bsc#987887)

@sa_userconf_maps has been extended to allow loading of per-recipient (or per-policy bank, or global) SpamAssassin configuration set from LDAP.

add some Sanesecurity.Foxhole false positives to the default list @virus_name_to_spam_score_maps
