Hello, I've been rebuilding packages after the 1.1.5 release, and it's caused some (apparent) regressions. file no longer compiles as it is unable to parse one of its magic files. The offending regex is (windows, line 163) \\`(\r\n|;|[|\xFF\xFE) It's testing for the BOM at the beginning of an INI/INF file. I understand the regex rewrite removed the ability to match arbitrary bytes (even with the C locale) because it was broken; is this something you plan to add back? Or is the application wrong? If so, what workaround do you suggest? The m4 testsuite also now fails tests 109 and 121; this seems to be caused by the same change.  http://git.musl-libc.org/cgit/musl/commit?id=ec1aed0a144b3e00e16eeb142c9d13362d6048e7 -- Regards, Samuel Holland <samuel@...lland.net>
