Well, scratch that machine (the work one).  That's the machine without
surbl installed anyway.

The home one does have surbl, and I just scanned 120 spams to 
see if it flagged any of them, (nope).  
I'm going to reduce the score from 3.0 to .5 just on the chance 
SURBL is working and pushing all the spam over my /dev/nul limit
in my procmail.  

But so far still no hint that it work.
Checked DNS (ok and ok with lint too)
Restarted spamd
Checked to make sure I moved the modules as explained
under painfull install.

This is perl, v5.8.0 built for i586-linux-thread-multi. on Suse 8.2 smp.
