That would be true, except that the exim port is setting WITH_BDB_VER?=1 to use the system BDB by default.

I have now fixed it so that the exim port doesn't need to set WITH_BDB_VER?=1 anymore.  Instead setting either WITH_BDB or WITH_BDB_VER > 1 will make the port use Mk/ to choose the version of BDB to use, otherwise it will default to the system BDB.
