Yesterday I installed a new system with gentoo linux.
I choose exim + dovecot, but smtp-auth makes problem. I tracked the logs and I found what was the probelm. After copying /etc/pam.d/pop3 to /etc/pam.d/smtp, smtp-auth trouble was gone.
Is there any reason that /etc/pam.d/smtp is not included in mailbase?

I'd say because it's provided by MTAs like postfix:
# qfile -Cv /etc/pam.d/smtp
Let's see what mailbase maintainers think about this.
Then this bug is the bug of exim ebuild.
# epm -ql exim | grep smtp
Then this wass the bug of exim ebuild.
Since we need this file if we use mta and every mta has dependency on mailbase, I think /etc/pam.d/smtp should be installed by mailbase not by particular mta.
postfix just does:
pamd_mimic_system smtp auth account
is there any other mta that installs /etc/pam.d/smtp ? if not, having mailbase do it prob makes sense.
pamd_mimic system-auth exim auth account
I guess that could be rewritten as:
pamd_mimic_system exim auth account
e.g. (system-auth,) auth and account are common.
