To be exact, the issue here is that libmagic does recognize pcf.gz files
correctly *if* MAGIC_COMPRESS flag is used, but the last I tried it in early
February caolan said he started getting "cannot create pipe (Too many open
files)" errors from magic_file() from within rpm on openoffice.org build.
Didn't have a chance to investigate properly at that time so I just flipped it
back to not using MAGIC_COMPRESS which "fixed" the issue.

Looking it a bit more now, it seems that it's .zip files which cause fd leakage
in libmagic (4.x and 5.0), other forms of compression seem to be ok. I should
have a reproducer case for you shortly..
