I didn't install Exim 4.54 into another location;
someone else mentioned an alternate locationa and
I (perhaps incorrectly) mentioned that I had downloaded
and compiled it FROM another location.

The "make install" was run normally and the specially
compiled (make options) is in the default (/usr/bin)
location.

All I wish to do is make Setup aware of this if it
is possible.  

For now, I must (carefully) ensure that setup doesn't
overwrite my "good" version with the default.
