Excuse my ignorance, but I don't understand the above statement.
Could you elaborate a bit, please?

Is a functional change in findutils to be expected from this?

:  Also, I notice that import-gnulib hasn't been updated to reflect
:  the fact that config.rpath now lives in gnulib/build-aux.

That's another story, and might deserve another patch.

:  So I propose this patch to findutils.

So, my patch apparently /was/ correct (except the (c)-year). :-/
