Old file(1):

monster# file /lib/
/lib/ ELF 64-bit MSB shared object, SPARC V9, version 1 (FreeBSD), stripped

New file(1):

monster# file /lib/
/lib/ data, stripped

Among other things, this breaks a lot of package builds because
libtool 1.3 doesn't think FreeBSD/sparc64 can build shared libraries.
