I'm a developer for Chromebrew <https://github.com/skycocker/chromebrew>, a
package manager for ChromeOS.

We've had a problem with most all configure scripts: `file` is expected at
`/usr/bin/file`, but ChromeOS doesn't ship with `file`, so we have to provide
it at `/usr/local/bin/file`. `./configure` scripts generated with `autoconf`
are unaware of this and, instead of looking for the location of `file`, raise
an error:

./configure: line 6712: /usr/bin/file: No such file or directory

This particular error is an example from the latest version of `libsigsegv`

As I've never reported a bug of this type, I don't know what other information
would be helpful (logs, etc.), so please don't hesitate to let me know.
