Follow-up Comment #2, bug #25359 (project findutils):

Yes, the system has a stat()able /etc/passwd file. That's not the issue.

Secondly, the problem is reproduceable by hand, and only ftsfind is

Now for the interesting part:
It turns out the test works on a ubuntu machine. More interestingly, a clean
install of gentoo within a chroot on the ubuntu machine also allows the tests
to be passed.

On the flip side, I can't get the tests to work in any chroot (clean gentoo
or ubuntu) on the original test machine. Also the test fails on yet a third
gentoo machine. Thus, I suspect there is something which is not playing nicely
with ftsfind in a default configured gentoo kernel (2.6.27-gentoo-r8). I have
yet to get the motivation to figure out what specifically the issue could be.
If there are any other tests you had in mind to determine if this is a gentoo
specific issue or something in findutils, I'd be happy to look into it. Like I
said before, something in the Nov 30 commit seems to expose the issue.
