Update of bug #19619 (project findutils):

                  Status:               Need Info => Fixed                  
         Originator Name:                         => Eric Blake             


Follow-up Comment #2:

As of Apr 18, CVS findutils builds fine on cygwin, but the testsuite still
fails due to bug #18414 when run as a user with admin privileges (where
access(R_OK) succeeds on any file, regardless of mode).

Also, several tests fail when CDPATH contains ., rather than gracefully
skipping those tests; contrast the output of two different tests in this

FAIL: execdir-in-unreadable.new-O3,
/home/eblake/findutils/find/testsuite/../find: The current directory is
included in the PATH environment variable, which is insecure in combination
with the -execdir action of find.  Please remove the current directory from
your $PATH (that is, remove "." or leading or trailing colons)
Running /home/eblake/findutils/find/testsuite/find.gnu/execdir-one.exp ...
WARNING:  Cannot perform test as your $PATH environment variable includes a
reference to the current directory or a directory name which is not absolute

As those are both testsuite failures (and one already has a separate bug
open), and not build failures, this bug is fixed once you release 4.3.4.
