sox: file or libmagic?

Port: sox


sox declares a dependency on the file port. Does sox actually need the MacPorts version of the file program, or does it just need the libmagic library? The libmagic library was separated out of the file port some time ago, so if sox only needs the libmagic library, then it should depend on the libmagic port, not the file port.

SoX only uses libmagic, not the 'file' binary. Thanks for noticing. Portfile diff attached.
