If you want to stay with the Debian/Ubuntu structrure of config files,
you need to apply their small modification to 2.7.0 too, or call 
include_config_files(...) from your own amavisd.conf .

... or just forget about their structure of config files, and
use a single /etc/amavisd.conf .

That question would better be answered by Debian/Ubuntu users.
