Changes to the way findutils is built from gnulib

Findutils-4.2.30 was released earlier today.

Following that release, there has been a change to the way in which
the findutils code is built from the CVS repository.  The
import-gnulib.sh script now automatically downloads and configures the
correct version of gnulib, as controlled by a new configuration file,
import-gnulib.config.   For more details, please see the file
README-CVS in the CVS repository for findutils.

The intent of this change is to make it possible to check out of CVS
exactly the right set of code to reproduce an already-released version
of findutils, and to make it easier to keep up-to-date with newer
releases of Gnulib.

A similar change has been made in the CVS code for findutils-4.3.x.

Soon (before any more findutils-4.2.x releases), the Gnulib code in
use for findutils-4.2.x will be updated to a more recent version.
