13 This is telling you that vixie-cron (which is already installed so will
14 not be merged again) is trying to bring in ssmtp for some reason. I
15 don't use exim or know anything about it, but does its ebuild register
16 it as a proper MTA? It seems that your system either doesn't recognize
17 exim as an MTA, or perhaps that vixie-cron requires an MTA other than
18 exim (postfix is nice :) )
