error: stat of /var/log/clamav/clamd.log failed: No such file or directory
$ l /var/log/clamav/clamd.log

The wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ClamAV doesn't mention the
issue, so is this a bug? If so, upstream or here?
I have to think this is something you're triggering yourself. ClamAV
doesn't seem to ship with any cron jobs. (See "pacman -Ql clamav | grep
cron") So this must be either a cron job you've added yourself, or some
old one that's left hanging around.
As far as the clamd log file, I think it's normal to be empty if you're
not running clam as a daemon. That's how mine is:
$ ls -l /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 clamav clamav 0 May 5 2013 /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
Only other remaining explanations I could offer are:
* The drive that /var/log/clamav is on is damaged and unreadable. (See
if you see any errors in either dmesg or /var/log/messages)
* You have a permissions issue on either /var/log/clamav, /var/log, or
/var, whereby the user running the cronjob doesn't have read or execute
permissions to one of those directories.
