So what you are doing
here is to add a stray ';', which leads to a syntax error:

I guess the patch is attempting to work around an incompatibility with the 'find' implementation on OS/2, which evidently does not support the '+' syntax that was introduced in POSIX:2001. But one can run the 'bootstrap' script on any platform, and then transfer the resulting source-file tree to OS/2 for further processing. So if my guess is right, it's not essential to change 'bootstrap' to work around the incompatibility.
