If that doesn't work you could modify the above like so:
  bogofilter -s -B $(find $HOME/spam -type f)
  bogofilter -s -B `find $HOME/spam -type f`
where the 2nd one has backticks in there.  Keep in mind that if you have
a boat load of spam (like over 2000 messages) then your shell might
complain about it due to a limit on how many arguments you can pass
