In fact that was us (Debian) and we did that for more than 15 years. We
(Debian) ship that file empty:

use strict;

# Place your configuration directives here.  They will override those in
# earlier files.
# See /usr/share/doc/amavisd-new/ for documentation and examples of
# the directives you can use in this file

#------------ Do not modify anything below this line -------------
1;  # ensure a defined return

Probably you changed something and forget the trailing "1;".
