After shopping I had some time, so I might be able to answer your
questions now.

Regarding the cron job I found https://calomel.org/bogofilter.htm. This
is irrelevant for you, since you want to check against spam when
retrieving mails.

Taking a look at my Arch's bogofilter, I noticed that the software's
tarball is a bz2.

Assumed you want to know, what to do with the tarball:

Apart from the tools to build, you need runtime and build dependencies:

db, perl, gsl, sqlite, valgrind, xmlto

The directory were to install is defined by "configure":

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/bogofilter  --localstatedir=/var --enable-transactions --with-database=db

Optional add "--help" to the above list, or instead of "--prefix=/usr" install to "--prefix=/usr/local".

I don't know why, perhaps a README does inform about this, but when building
an Arch package, they run just make and in addition:

BF_RUN_VALGRIND=1 make -k -C src check || /bin/true

Perhaps because they attached a patch.
