As long as you use non-split config and do not have your own
/etc/exim4/exim4.conf, the only configuration files that are honored
are exim4.conf.localmacros and exim4.conf.template. It is possible to
set macros from the command line with the -D option, but afaik, the
Debian package do not use this and its use should be limited to
debugging and/or temporary things.
