Summary0000297: Looking inside compressed files disabled in builds which don't define HAVE_FORK
DescriptionBuilding version 5.41 on a system that doesn't have 'fork' disables built-in support for accessing compressed files, even if decompression libraries (zlib, liblzma, etc.) are available and enabled during configure run. For example 'file_zmagic' isn't even called if HAVE_FORK is not defined to a non-zero value.

I've reshuffled the various #define's and made some minor changes to the code to enable built-in decompression support when HAVE_FORK is not available. let me know if you are interested in the patch to do that.
TagsNo tags attached.
