Here's how to upgrade ClamAV from ports:

1. Update your ports tree.
# cvsup -g /etc/ports-supfile

2. Check what version of clamav you are about to compile (just in case)
# cat /usr/ports/security/clamav/distinfo

3. Compile and install ClamAV

# cd /usr/ports/security/clamav
# make install clean

4. Restart the clamd daemon

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ restart
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ restart

That's it.

If you want to install a version of ClamAV that isn't in the FreeBSD ports collection yet, fetch the tarball you want from and follow the instructions inside the INSTALL file. I.e. ./config, make, make install, make clean. Then follow point 3 and 4 above.
