That would be true, except that the exim port is setting WITH_BDB_VER?=1 to use the system BDB by default.
I have now fixed it so that the exim port doesn't need to set WITH_BDB_VER?=1 anymore. Instead setting either WITH_BDB or WITH_BDB_VER > 1 will make the port use Mk/bsd.database.mk to choose the version of BDB to use, otherwise it will default to the system BDB.
