This sounds like a symptom of not using a new enough gnulib version; yet
my recollection was that I fixed it in gnulib on Sep 24:

whereas findutils 4.3.9 claims to use gnulib from Nov 11.

Oh - perhaps I see the problem.  I'm guessing that James mistakenly used
the old stale CVS gnulib repository, which went read-only on Sep 20:

rather than a fresh git checkout (or even a gnulib-pserver CVS checkout).

At any rate, when I provide the official cygwin port of findutils on the
cygwin site, you can rest assured that I will deal with whatever errors
there might actually be, as well as push patches back upstream.

It is considered poor netiquette to send email to publicly archived lists
when they have unenforceable disclaimers appended to them.  Please
consider using a different email account when writing to lists.
