Description

See configure.in:383

It tries to detect how to run the file command.
On builds for systems other than the running one, this has great
chance of going wrong:

Building system can never be assumed to be the target one.
There is no way to detect that at buildtime whatsoever
(only having the user to explicitly specifying it), so that
should happen at runtime (if really necessary at all).
