+The exim install script installs a binary named exim-<version>, plus a symlink
+to it named exim.
+In order to achieve this "feature" (of dubious usefulness) it runs the
+executable (on the host) and then filters its output to grab the version number.
+This clearly cannot work if the executable is cross-compiled, so get rid of all
+of it and just install an executable file called exim.
