Yes.  Find in particular has all kinds of semi-broken ports lying
around.  It's why I needed to do my own port years ago: the best one
in existence then was abysmally slow.  My port is much faster, and
generally doesn't lose features, but even it has deficiencies: for
example, the inode is always zero, so -inum doesn't work.

Like I said: I don't expect this customization to be of any use for
GNU/Linux users.
