In order to support -fstype the find program has to know how to map
device numbers (in struct stat) to filesytem type names.   Findutils
uses a function from the gnulib library to achieve this.  The source
for the message you are seeing is the file m4/ls-mntd-fs.m4 within
gnulib (I'm copying the gnulib mailing list on this email).  So it
seems that gnulib doesn't know yet how to read the list of mounted
filesystems on z/OS.   Making that enhancement to gnulib shoud fix
this problem for findutils (and also any other users of the same code,
including no doubt coreutils).

As for how to proceed, I would suggest that you go find out how to
read the list of mounted fileststems on z/OS and try to deduce how the
m4/ls-mntd-fs.m4 file might need to be changed.
