 Thanks ... unfortunately, while I *thought* this was fixed, I must have
 botched my testing.  After a new build with ~July 29th sources and
 installation the problem is still present:
 
 Wrong answers:
 
   $ file /usr/bin/file /usr/share/misc/magic /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc
   /usr/bin/file:             Symbian installation file, for NetBSD 4.0,
   dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
   /usr/share/misc/magic:     magic text file for file(1) cmd
   /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc: Infocom game data (Z-machine 241, Release
   1052 /
 
   # mv /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc-bigendian
   # file -C -m /usr/share/misc/magic
 
   $ file /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc*
   /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc:           magic binary file for file(1) cmd
   (version 4) (little endian)
   /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc-bigendian: magic binary file for file(1) cmd
   (version 4) (big endian)
 
 The 'mv' and 'file -C' are an easy workaround, at least.
 
 Host and target platforms the same as when the PR was filed.
 
 Can the PR be placed back in 'open' state, please?
 
 Regards,
 
 Giles
