a new upstream release with some changes. please signoff.




Thanks to everyone who tested, wrote code, or contributed fixes! I
bumped the version to 5.00 because there were a lot of changes in the
code that might affect how file behaves now compared to in the past (I
have not found any regressions, but there might be).

	- add CDF file support (Microsoft Office <= 2007)
	- add recursive magic, so we can handle ID3 files properly
	- str{cat,cpy} -> strl{cpy,cat}
	- --mime* flags now really work
	- add --apple magic
	- many encoding fixes
	- read ~/.magic in addition to the default magic file not
	  instead of, as documented in the man page
	- many magic changes
