The file magic.h is the header file to libmagic a libary that is part of the
system, magic(3). The header is located in /usr/src/contrib/file/magic.h.
The only reason for doing I did this crazy stunt is I followed a thread on
one of the list recommended that I copy the magic.h to /usr/include. I do not
know if this is correct or not? Andy Fawcett found an error in the
configure script which solved the problem, see thread for more details.
I understand I have a lot to learn.
Thank you for your help.
