This is what's in mine:

:0fw
| /usr/local/bin/spamassassin
:0
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
bullshit/

Here's what it does: It passes the mail through spamassassin
(/usr/ports/mail/p5-Mail-SpamAssassin), which will append a header named
"X-Spam-Status" to the mail. If that header exists, the mail is directed
into an appropriately named folder.

I now get between 50 and 60 spam messages a day (just one of the perks
of being a FreeBSD committer active on the mailing lists, I suppose),
and spamassassin catches about 95% of them.

To be honest, my procmail filter is a tad different. I have spamd
running from /usr/local/etc/rc.d, and my spamassassin filter line is
actually | /usr/local/bin/spamc. Same difference, though.
