Worked fine for me on a straight 6.0-RELEASE build from scratch:

root at chronos [/usr/ports/mail/exim-sqlite]# make
=> exim-4.61.tar.bz2 doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/exim.


 >>> exim binary built
root at chronos [/usr/ports/mail/exim-sqlite]# make install
Don't forget to add 'exim_enable="YES"' to rc.conf(5)

       This port has installed the following binaries which execute with
       increased privileges.

       This port has installed the following files which may act as network
       servers and may therefore pose a remote security risk to the system.

       This port has installed the following startup scripts which may cause
       these network services to be started at boot time.

       If there are vulnerabilities in these programs there may be a 
       risk to the system. FreeBSD makes no guarantee about the security of
       ports included in the Ports Collection. Please type 'make deinstall'
       to deinstall the port if this is a concern.

       For more information, and contact details about the security
       status of this software, see the following webpage:
