Thank you for taking the time to write such a clear and informative explanation.

You nailed it:

MrMuscle:Downloads mnewman$ clamscan gettext-0.19.6-MACOS-10.11-10.12-SDK-10.11.pkg
LibClamAV Warning: cli_scanxz: decompress file size exceeds limits - only scanning 27262976 bytes
gettext-0.19.6-MACOS-10.11-10.12-SDK-10.11.pkg: OK

Thanks again.
