I wouldn't object to minor and obvious tweaks that are checked out by
a real user who actually needs findutils to run on SunOS 4.1.4.  My
assumption in dropping support for SunOS 4.1.4 was partly predicated
on nobody really needing it any more (and computer museums don't count
as real needs :-).

For realloc the obvious tweak is to #include <stddef.h>.
(In the old days my solution would have been to not use NULL, but
those days are long gone.)
