A recompilation of exim under the new "glibc regime" fixes this, at least
on Alpha.  I'm uploading a binary-only NMU for Alpha to make sure that
exim continues to work for us there.  i386 and other ports may wish to do
the same OR perhaps the maintainer should upload a new release with new
build-depends to make sure it gets built under the new glibc.
