    '{}' can only be used portable, if it is a separate argument.

    Also refer to SUSv2 which says on this topic

    -exec utility_name [argument..] ;

    [..] A utility_name or argument containing only the two
    characters {} will be replaced by the current pathname. If a
    utility_name or argument string contains the two characters
    {}, but not just the two characters {}, it is
    implementation-dependent whether find replaces those two
    characters with the current pathname or uses the string
    without change.
