Without a packageconfig dependency for the file utility, there's
a very rare compile faiure caused by a race where the magic.h
header file is not found:

 ../../../git/lib/support/plausible.c:33:19: fatal error: magic.h: No such file 
or directory

This file, plausible.c, is part of libsupport.a which is used by
many binaries produced by the e2fsprogs package. plausible.c attempts
to dynamically load libmagic.so if the e2fsprogs configure detects
that magic was available. Adding the packageconfig will eliminate
the build as well as the possible configure-time race condition.
