Removing all exim4 packages fixes the problem, however I would like to
* aptitudes says I have held broken packages. `dpkg --get-selections`
says I have no held packages at all. Is this a (small) bug in
* Why is my package considered "broken"? All dependencies are correct.
Should it explicitly conflict with exim4? (I think this is pointless
since postfix already does.)
