I eventually figured out that $msginfo->per_recip_data is available, and
was able to do the following:

        my $r = @{$msginfo->per_recip_data}[0];
        my $score = $r->spam_level;

Does $score now not contain the value of X-Spam-Score?

It seems like I'm still missing something. I believe the latest
amavisd-custom example file still includes references to using
$msginfo->spam_level and not the $msginfo->per_recip_data.
