Thanks for reporting.

Could you please attach the relevant part of the config.log file,
to see exactly why magic.h fails to be compiled.

On what kind of system are you compiling nano?  Red Hat, Debian,
Ubuntu...?  And which version of the distro?

Were you able to compile older versions of nano without this
warning?  Or did you simply not notice?  Or did you not compile
nano before?
