Since 4.5.x works, I'm going to close this bug as fixed.

Sorry, I meant, what's the earliest 4.5.x release that works?

Could you try this with a selection of findutils releases from alpha.gnu.org?   If any version works, what's the earliest version that works?

I'm trying to cross-compile findutils-4.4.2. I configured it with the following arguments: --prefix=/usr --build=i686-unknown-linux-gnu --host=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu --disable-nls. When running "make", I get the following error message:

make[4]: Entering directory `/mnt/clfs/sources/findutils-build/gnulib/lib'
depbase=`echo areadlink-with-size.o | sed 's|[^/]*$|.deps/&|;s|\.o$||'`;\

I can get rid of it by adding gl_cv_func_wcwidth_works=yes to the configure arguments list, but I wonder if this is the normal and recommended way to proceed or if this is a bug.
