I've uploaded findutils-4.4.0-2 to release-2. I've tested that birthtime
support works, and the code heavily exercises the new *at() functions.
However, I haven't yet tested whether the long path name support works,
but assume it does, because findutils includes some configure-time tests
to see what to support. Also, it looks like long path names are currently
quadratic in behavior, as the configure-time test for whether getcwd()
returns accurate results on names longer than PATH_MAX took several
seconds to complete, whereas the same test on Linux is as fast as any of
the other configure checks.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
