Yes. If available, the daily cron job uses it to generate new
dh_parameters while exim still uses the old set. If gnutls-bin is not
available, the daily cron job will just remove the old dh_parameters
and rely on exim itself re-generating them which will cause connection
delays in case of entropy starvation.

No, it's a matter of the daily cron job. This needs a reasonably
recent post-sarge exim4.
