Fabrice, All,

On 2020-02-01 12:04 +0100, Fabrice Fontaine spake thusly:
> file does not need a dependency on host-file and as host-file was only
> used by file, drop host-file altogether
>

That dependendcy was dded in 2005, with a message stating (roughly) that
we need to have a file version on the host that is not older than the
version on the target.

And indeed, it does not build on my autobuilder, with this error message
(yes, file is nice enough to not fail miserably and provide a useful
message):

    Making all in magic
    Cannot use the installed version of file (5.14) to
    cross-compile file 5.38
    Please install file 5.38 locally first

So, I'll reject this patch.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
