Package: exim4-daemon-heavy
Version: 4.69-9
Severity: normal

I'm trying to setup sa-exim at my mail server and got this error after uncommenting 

begin local_scan
    local_scan_path = /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/sa-exim.so

But got this message on daemon start:

2008-10-31 18:32:21 Exim configuration error in line 490 of /etc/exim4/exim4.conf:
  local_scan() options not supported: (LOCAL_SCAN_HAS_OPTIONS not defined in Local/Makefile)

# yourself or use 'dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config'
# Please note that this is _not_ a dpkg-conffile and that automatic changes
# to this file might happen. The code handling this will honor your local
# changes, so this is usually fine, but will break local schemes that mess
# around with multiple versions of the file.
# update-exim4.conf uses this file to determine variable values to replace
# the DEBCONFsomethingDEBCONF strings in the configuration template files.
# Most settings found in here do have corresponding questions in the
# Debconf configuration, but not all of them.
