Hello findutils developers.
I see that findutils currently still uses the Automake's AM_C_PROTOTYPES
macro in its `configure.ac'. I want to inform you that that macro (along
with all the rest of the ansi2knr machinery) will be deprecated in the
next minor Automake release (1.11.2), and will be removed altogether in
the next major Automake release (1.12). I think this is an acceptable
move, since we should have finally reached the point when one doesn't
have to worry about non-ANSI C compilers anymore (I mean, C compilers
that understands only K&R C, and not C89).
See this thread on automake's list for more details:
Attached is a small patch that removes the use of AM_C_PROTOTYPES from
the findutils tree. After it, bootstrap, configuration, build and
testsuite still pass (on my Debian GNU/Linux system).

Subject: [PATCH] Remove vestigial de-ANSI-fication support.
The support for automatic de-ANSI-fication has been deprecated in
automake 1.11.2, and will be removed altogether in automake 1.12.
Also, findutils hasn't been using the `ansi2knr' option since at
least commit 01479665859eac23d4bb02b9926370537c059eff, dating back
* configure.ac (AM_C_PROTOTYPES): Remove call to this macro.
Remove other ansi2knr-related cruft (already commented-out).
