Bug#845205: Incompatible with MariaDB 10.1

Package: exim4
Version: 4.88~RC4-2
X-Debbugs-CC: pkg-mysql-maint at lists.alioth.debian.org

It appears that exim4 from exim4-daemon-heavy is now linked to libmariadbclient.so.18 which does not exist in MariaDB 10.1 - only libmysqlclient.so.18 is provided.

/usr/sbin/exim4: error while loading shared libraries: libmariadbclient.so.18: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Manually symlinking to libmysqlclient.so.18 results in:

/usr/sbin/exim4: /usr/lib/libmariadbclient.so.18: version `libmariadbclient_18' not found (required by /usr/sbin/exim4)

This did not occur in the last testing build 4.87-3+b1.
