How exactly did you determine this? I doubt it is cron as Recommends are 
not installed during base system installation (debootstrap).

The only correct way to check what pulls exim in is to check the syslog for 
the installation. Please send a (gzipped!) copy (you can find it on the 
installed system in /var/log/installer).
