bug#17971: 24.3.92; Patch to fix el compression on RHEL/CentOS 7

Strangely it looks like find 4.5 builds have been in Fedora since at least FC18.

Testing the behaviour, it appears that the .el file is successfully compressed to make-mode.el.gz, but find errors out. It seems like it might be doing a stat on the .el file after gzip does it's work.

It appears that Emacs 24.3 has a different find command for the compression which doesn't seem to exacerbate the regression in find 4.5.

Thanks for investigating.
Do you understand why new find is failing?
Is it a bug in find, or ...?

After it says:

> find: './progmodes/make-mode.el': No such file or directory

does make-mode.el.gz exist (meaning it somehow got exec'd twice, which
seems like a find bug); or was find somehow in a different directory
(which also would seem like a find bug)?

Since today's RHEL is yesterday's Fedora, I'm a bit surprised this
hasn't been reported before. I looked in RH bugzilla but did not see
anything relevant.

BTW, I'm surprised to see that RHEL7 (long-term enterprise release) has
ended up with a findutils version from the 4.5 series, which looks like
a development branch. Even Debian unstable still has 4.4*.
