        libmagic and file manpages make reference to magic file as magic(4); 
magic man page is currently filed as magic(5). Further title shown in libmagic 
shows as "magic(3)", but "man 3 magic" has no entry.
        Review manual pages.
        is magic file description of section 4 or 5? Fix header in libmagic man 
page, or make another entry to reflect header?
