Thanks for the bug report.  It would be nice if it did work.

i agree. but i am not holding my breath as

a) i'm sure the number of sunos4 users out there is very finite
b) the older version of findutils appears to work fine

but thanks for taking the time to send this really quick response.

4.1.4 and an irix 5.3 server available for developers interested in
testing/porting software to older OSes.

That could indeed be a useful resource.  However, I have a limited
amount of time available to work on findutils (and the other free
software project I work on) and so I have to prioritise some things
over others.  That means that although I would like to fix this, in
practice I can't take the time out to do it.

no worries.. the offer is open for as long as the hardware is around
so feel free to take me up on it if you're feeling particularly
masochistic one day.  i find about a day of compiling software on
sunos4 reminds me of how far software dev and packaging has come
along in 10+ years and why i don't want to go back.

address@hidden I hope that somebody on that list can confirm that
the problem as what I suspect and recommend a way forward.  That
suggestion might include sending a patch to the gnulib maintainers,
but it might not.

me too - i will poke around further and see what i can come up with.
