customize problem 1: find-grep-dired

What is the customize-group for find-grep-dired? or how else to solve
the problem below:

I'm running GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.0.2195) of 2001-10-22.
Note the 'ms'. I tried to do a find-dired equivalent to

find . -name ".options"

find-dired wanted to do

find . \( -name ".options" \) -exec ls -ld {} \;

which choked. Fortunately, one can set the "Find Option" syntax for
find-dired in the customize-group named (oddly enough :-) find-dired;
now it happily does

find . \( -name ".options" \) -exec ls -ld {} ;

(with no escape of ';') However, find-grep-dired wants to do (e.g.)

find . \( -type f -exec grep -q "debug=true" {} \;  \) -exec ls -ld {} ;

which chokes, although

find . \( -type f -exec grep -q "debug=true" {} ;  \) -exec ls -ld {} ;

works from cmd. But I can't find means to customize this behavior.

TIA, Tom Roche <>
