It was also recently added to CVS cygwin, since the NTFS filesystem also
supports birthtime.

Excellent.  Which struct stat field is this in?  st_spare99? :)

Have you added test cases to CVS?  If so, I'll make time to compile a
fresh CVS checkout on cygwin and see how it fares with birthtime support.

I was deferring checking in changes in findutils until the relevant
gnulib change is either checked in or rejected, in order to avoid
inconveniencing people who are tacking CVS.

No, there are no test cases in findutils CVS for time-based checks.
Devising a way of adding them is one of the proposed SOC projects, in
fact.  No takers yet though.
