Over the years I've seen a lot of misuse of the -C option by well meaning new users who think they need to specify everything (most commonly they use -C /etc/mail/spamassassin). Of course, this causes the default rules dir to be over-ridden by the site dir, eliminating the default ruleset completely. I even recently found this mistake in some wiki articles and a simple google for "-C /etc/mail/spamassassin" will show how common this mistake is. We really should clarify the manpages to point out this isn't really necessary, and should only be used by advanced users.
