I've get the most recent version of gunlib by "git clone" and it seems that the 
issue is resolved here.
How should I proceed with my findutils?

Thanks for the report.  In reality, this is a gnulib issue, so I have added 
bug-gnulib.  Also, I'm not sure if gnulib has fixed the problem in the 
meantime, and findutils is just suffering from a stale gnulib release, or if it 
still exists in upstream gnulib.

Are you in a position where you could help test building from git?  With a 
recent gnulib.git checkout, it would be nice to know the results of:
./gnulib-tool --create-testdir --with-tests --dir=foo wchar stdio followed by 
configuring in the just-created foo directory and running 'make check' for your 
cross compiler setup.
