You could check by running:
    strace -f make 2>TRAIL; grep magic.h TRAIL

But I don't think it matters which header gets used but which data files.
When I run:

    strace src/nano README 2>TRAIL; grep magic TRAIL

and press ^X, it opened /etc/magic and /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc.
The first is empty apart from two comment lines, and the second
is filled with binary data.  Possibly in your case it finds multiple
binary data files?

Sounds good.
