I know.

The problem is, there aren't very many of us, and we don't have much spare

It looks like the problem you're having with both sendmail and exim is
lack of db support.  Try installing the packages libdb2 and libdb2-dev.
(This should enable you to run them and compile them).

It looks to me like a bug that exim (and possibly sendmail too) do not
depend on libdb, but I could be missing something.
