I fixed the problem by copying the relevant definition from the gnulib sources.

Hi, in "find/find.c", NOT_AN_INODE_NUMBER is used in certain cases, but it's not defined, while it is in "gl/lib/fts.c".

Attached you can find a (working) quick & dirty patch which defines NOT_AN_INODE_NUMBER in find.c. Probably the best solution would be to have a shared .h file defining it.

I met this problem while building findutils in Gentoo, MIPS hardened (using uClibc) profile.
