  $ rpm -q file
  file-4.17-15.el5_3.1
  $ rpm -ql file

  /usr/lib/libmagic.so.1

This machine is i386.

If yours is x86-64, then it could be a multilib brokenness problem.
You will need to remove the libguestfs.i386 package, block it so that
it never gets installed, and reinstall the libguestfs.x86_64 package.
