Looks like the problem with exim4 not finding the smtp port was due to
that the /etc/services file from netbase was corrupt, caused by the  
earlier filesystem corruption. Reinstalling netbase enabled exim4 to be
installed. But now the problem is back to the previous error (since
the initial install): 

Starting MTA: exim4.

I assume this is a Hurd bug, which package to file a bug report for,
hurd, mach or any other?

Maybe I should install another MTA to avoid this problem, in this case
which one?
