 Ok, file is at version 4.12 in 6.1-RELEASE-p11.
 I have tried with version 4.19 from ftp.astron.com,
 and that version does not dump core on the problem file.
 But I now have /usr/local/bin/file at 4.19 and /usr/bin/file
 at 4.12. What do I have to do to make the entire FreeBSD system
 use /usr/local/bin/file (and the associated magic files of the
 correct version) instead of /usr/bin/file? I can't move away from
 x.x-RELEASE-pxx because of upgrading policy on production servers.
 This goes beyond my usual cvsup, make buildworld/buildkernel/
 installkernel/installworld cycle. Should I put all files from
 file-4.19.tar into /usr/src/contrib/file and then run a make
 buildworld and make installworld?
 I'm sorry if this is too much of a beginners question, please
 attach some URL or some relevant search phrase to any RTFM:s.
