Description:
------------
PHP fails if one use the magic file shipped with file 5.05. The reason is that newer version(s) of file use libmagic version unsupported by the one bundled with PHP

Test script:
---------------
<?php
    $fileinfo=new finfo(FILEINFO_MIME, "/usr/share/misc/magic.mgc");
    var_dump($fileinfo->file("/tmp/test.jpg"));
?>

Expected result:
----------------
string(26) "image/jpeg; charset=binary" 

Actual result:
--------------
Warning: finfo::finfo(): Failed to load magic database at
'/usr/share/misc/magic.mgc'. in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/fileinfo.php on line
2
