I just tried uninstalling & reinstalling 5.05, and I'm getting the
same behavior. I get identical results to yours from the "file -l"
Curiously, it's also not recognizing binaries (like its own) as Mach-O
executables. file `which file` is giving me "data".
It does recognize things like M4A and WAV files, as well as JPEGs / PNGs.
Could it be a 32-bit / 64-bit issue?
