Bug#349005: artsdsp supposed to work for shell scripts

artsdsp is a script.
The error message "artsdsp works only for binaries" comes from the file check:
# setup artsdsp preload to hijack calls made to /dev/dsp
set `file -L $binary`
case $2 in
echo "artsdsp works only for binaries"
The check fails for wrapper script:
file -L /usr/bin/firefox
/usr/bin/firefox: POSIX shell script text executable
file -L /usr/lib/iceweasel/firefox-bin
/usr/lib/iceweasel/firefox-bin: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1
(SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
a possible workaround is to use readlink.
I don't have realplayer but I'll bet this is a similar trick.
