OK, I'll try to use findutils-4.2.18.tar.gz into my own branch.

Another problem is, when I type "git checkout FINDUTILS_4_3_5-1" to switch
to the version 4.3.5, and use "sh import-gnulib.sh" for preparation, an
error arises:
configure.in:70: error: AC_REQUIRE: circular dependency of AC_GNU_SOURCE
gnulib/m4/extensions.m4:19: AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS is expanded from...
../../lib/autoconf/specific.m4:332: AC_GNU_SOURCE is expanded from...
gnulib/m4/extensions.m4:19: AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS is expanded from...
../../lib/autoconf/specific.m4:454: AC_AIX is expanded from...
configure.in:70: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal: autom4te failed with exit status: 1

What should I do to solve the problem now?
