I'm following up on an issue discussed on the Libtool list . Basically,
Libtool requires 'file' to be installed and breaks if it is not, and
correctly so since 'file' is part of the POSIX base since issue 7 [2, at
The fact that the Libtool package in Cygwin requires 'file' is not enough
as a casual user building some libtoolized package unexpectedly has to make
sure 'file' is installed.
So, please add 'file' to the Cygwin 'base' category, moving us one small
step closer to the POSIX heaven.
