If it were possible to arrange things so that only libmagic.a is in the paths being searched, I think Bro would just go with that.  Or a quick/dirty way would be to edit Bro’s cmake/FindLibMagic.cmake to unconditionally do [1] instead of just when on Darwin.

Also just FYI, Bro 2.3 won’t depend on libmagic.
