Are you sure? mimedefang.pl explicitly sets
    userprefs_filename => "/etc/mail/spamassassin.cf"
in the SpamAssassin constructor.
This file has "rewrite_subject 0" by default. If you comment it out....

Doesn't Mail::SpamAssassin use the same rules for loading config and prefs 
files as per the spamassassin man page - ie. it looks in a multitude of 
places and loads spamassasin.cf and .prefs files in a specific order.
