Oh, i thought this would be quite the opposite, i.e., forcefully
rejecting or replacing those mentioned?! I have looked at exim,
who does not do anything regarding replaces= etc., so i kept that
part of the DMA APKBUILD the way it was. I mean, if the DMA
package as posted on -ports is not updated the desired way then
i have to stick with a manual compilation of DMA for now anyway..
But thanks a lot for the feedback!
