That text comes with the Vexira entry:
['CentralCommand Vexira (new) vascan',
"-a s --timeout=60 --temp=$TEMPBASE -y $QUARANTINEDIR ".
...and only applies to this specific setting where the $QUARANTINEDIR
is (re-)used in a command-line option to vascan. Configure the -y option
of the vascan program to point to anywhere you like, it need not
be the $QUARANTINEDIR.
As far as amavisd is concerned, quarantiing need not be enabled,
regardless of which types of checks are in use.
