This is FreeBSD (9.2-STABLE, r256062), amavisd-new 2.8.0, and file 5.15. Mailserver including amavisd is running in a service jail.
After a recent port upgrade of file to 5.15, I do get warnings like shown in the subject line. In order to debug that issue I did replace the file 5.15 by the file 5.11 executable, and well, now those warning messages disappeared.
Here my questions:
1. Do others see those warning messages as well, running the combination amavisd-new 2.8.0 and file 5.15?
2. Can one safely ignore those messages?
3. May "$file = '/usr/bin/file';" in amavisd.conf function as a valid workaround for the time being?
(I have to admit that I didn't dare testing that, yet)
Thanks and with kind regards,
