The .info file for spamassassing 3.4.0 mentions perl-IP-Country
as a requirement, but this package seems to be obsolete.

>From /usr/doc/spamassassin-3.4.0/INSTALL:

Optional Modules
  - Geo::IP (from CPAN)

    Used by the RelayCountry plugin (not enabled by default) to determine
    the domain country codes of each relay in the path of an email.

    IP::Country::Fast is used as alternative if Geo::IP is not installed.
    This is not recommended as it's obsolete.

A SlackBuild for the Geo::IP module is available on SlackBuilds.org
as perl-Geo-IP (version 1.45). (The download link of that package is
currently broken. See my previous mail to the slackbuilds mailing list.)
