--- Comment #7 from Ryder <rtd24 at columbia.edu> ---
Minor update: this is still broken for file-5.22 and 10.1-RELEASE-p5. 

This also breaks py-magic, which is what led me here.
>>> import magic
>>> m = magic.open(magic.MAGIC_MIME)
>>> m.load()

...same errors as with file(1), ending with
/usr/share/misc/magic, 17382: Warning: Printf format `l' is not valid for type
`byte' in description `- version %ld'

Thanks for the workaround. For fixing py27-magic, I can pass it the port
version's magic file instead, like so:

>>> m.load('/usr/local/share/file/magic')
>>> m.file('.macromedia')
'inode/directory; charset=binary'
