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.
