Well, since /usr/bin/file is hard-coded, adding ‘file’ as an input would
not be enough: you’d also need to patch ‘configure’.

However, this /usr/bin/file stanza in ‘configure’ scripts doesn’t seem
to have any practical impact since we’ve been building without it for
ages.  So I would just keep ignoring it.  :-)
