I'm not aware of any newer yum repositories, but I will say that SpamAssassin is very
easy to build from source.  You only have to create the init.d scripts once and they
will continue to be used for any further updates.  In the 'spamd' directory of the
source, there are sample startup scripts provided for various distros.
