retitle 612742 New upstream file-5.06 solves FTBFS on GNU/Hurd

Dear maintainers of file utility,

Upstream has now released file-5.06. Among the changes made is to 
dynamically allocate buffers to avoid the MAXPATHLEN problems causing
FTBFS on GNU/Hurd. After bug #612272 was filed, communication continued
with upstream and they took the effort to fix these problems. This is
really a good example of upstreams responsiveness. 

Please package file-5.06.
