[Mageia-dev] Notice on rpm-mageia-setup's find-requires script

There is something wrong with my bugzilla account. so I post the
relevant info here.

`file` changes its output recently, maybe in 5.05, which affects
find-requires in rpm-setup-build's helper.

In 5.03 (in mandriva 2010) for instance:
$ file /usr/bin/genhdlist2
/usr/bin/genhdlist2: a /usr/bin/perl script text executable

But in 5.06 (in mandriva cooker and mageia cauldron):
$ file /usr/bin/genhdlist2
/usr/bin/genhdlist2: a /usr/bin/perl script, ASCII text executable

Such a change will cause find-requires cannot find correct perl
scripts, thus missing requirements for the package. Maybe someone
would be interesting on this:

And, maybe a robot could rebuild all the relevant packages, which
might be a huge work, especially when the release is coming.
