       find / -P -name FOO

   What does -P do?  I don't see it in the documentation of find
   on my machine.

>From (find)Symbolic Links:

     `find' does not dereference symbolic links at all.  This is the
     default behaviour.  This option must be specified before any of the
     file names on the command line.

Seems that find already does the right thing when it comes to
dereferncing, so `find / -name FOO' should work even with a `/usr ->
.' symbolic link.  I was under the impression that it dereferenced
symbolic links by default...
