I think you should be able to:

 o Unpack the archive into, say, ~/spambayes

 o Add ~/spambayes/scripts to your PATH

 o Add ~/spambayes to your PYTHONPATH (which is an environment variable
   just like PATH, that tells Python where to look for library modules).

I've not tried this, but it ought to work.  (On Windows I do something
analogous to run CVS SpamBayes).
