Hi Karl,

indeed, a new cut of the GNU findutils is overdue: we have already 187 commits
since v4.6.0 which was released around Xmas 2015.
I have a few things open on my side, but then need to find some time to do
the release together with James.

Re. the tests: in that situation, I'd try to skip the gnulib tests,
and only let the find/xargs tests run.  Or you can try with a new snapshot
tarball created with './bootstrap && ./configure && make all dist' from a
git clone.

Have a nice day,
