Your makefile (not the findutils makefile) appears to have an error.
@ in the sense you are using it is a directive to Make (indicating
that the command should not be echoed before it is run), so if you
need to use it, it should occur at the beginning of the command make
is executing.  In your case however, the @ appears in the middle of
the command line that make uses to invoke configure.    You probably
just misplaced the "\".

The README and INSTALL files accompanying the findutils distribution
explain how to configure and install findutils.
