Both the SpamCop & surbl tests depend upon DNS queries. Have you
done a 'spamassassin --lint -D' and looked for the DNS checks
being OK? Could be that your perl doesn't have the DNS module
installed or your system fails to resolve the remote sites that
SA uses to check your DNS and thus fails to activate it.
Any chance that you're running spamd with network checks disabled? '-L'
