One of the issues might be FreeBsd jail.
(and as earlier poster stated, amavisd-new doesn't call spamd)
We are talking about amavisd-new, NOT amavisd, right?

I am the official ports maintainer of SpamAssassin, and would be interested
in making sure it and amaivsd-new worked in a freebsd jail.

Some of the 'jail' issues include NOT lo0 (localhost) ip address.
(yes, you can ping localhost / 127.0.0.1, BUT, I suspect the ACL's in the
amavisd.conf* files are looking for a Reverse ip == to 127.0.0.1

Things to try (assumes standard postfix/amavisd/spamassassin setup)

Set $log_level = 9; in amavisd.conf, restart amavisd (you do have
amavisd_enable = "yes" in rc.conf, right?

Telnet localhost 25
Telnet localhost 10024
Telnet localhost 100025

See what happens. You SHOULD get banners.
(I just get:
(!)DENIED ACCESS from IP 192.168.1.20, policy bank ''

Where 192.168.1.20 is the 'jail' ip address.

Ifconfig (note, NO ip address on lo0?)

bge0: flags=8843 mtu 1500
options=b
inet 192.168.1.200 netmask 0xffffffff broadcast 10.70.1.20
ether 00:0a:22:1f:18:64
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX )
status: active
bge1: flags=8802 mtu 1500
options=b
ether 00:0a:22:1f:18:65
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX )
status: active
lo0: flags=8049 mtu 16384
