Description:
------------
Hi,

As Debian uses /usr/share/misc/file/magic as its main magic database, maybe it would be cool to add this path in first position of MAGIC_MIME_LOCATIONS in config.m4 (/etc/magic exists but is empty by default so if we leave default config.m4 or put new path at the end, compilation is ok but we've got error on running ("Warning: finfo_open(): Failed to load magic database at '/etc/magic'")

Cheers

Hi,

Thank you for fixing it in CVS.

Yet, I don't know if it's specific to Debian, but as I noticed on my first message, it works only if the new path is before /etc/magic; and I saw you put it after.

Cheers
