Please try again with the master branch from git. There are some brief instructions about downloading the code here:

Once you have done that, follow the instructions at http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/findutils.git/tree/README-hacking in order to build the code.

Objective: Build " findutils-4.4.2" statically for arm platform

Steps followed:
export CC="${CLFS_TARGET}-gcc"
export CXX="${CLFS_TARGET}-g++"
export AR="${CLFS_TARGET}-ar"
export AS="${CLFS_TARGET}-as"
export RANLIB="${CLFS_TARGET}-ranlib"
export LD="${CLFS_TARGET}-ld"
export STRIP="${CLFS_TARGET}-strip"
cat > config.cache << EOF

./configure --build=${CLFS_HOST} --host=${CLFS_TARGET} --prefix=/home/chrome/install/ --cache-file=config.cache --libexecdir=/usr/lib/locate --localstatedir=/var/lib/locate CFLAGS="-static"

make all-am

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/chrome/data/yesuraj/test_apps/android_utils/findutils-4.4.2'
make: *** [all] Error 2

The error is not seen if I remove the flags CFLAGS="-static"

I want to build statically for arm architecture.
Please help me in resolving this issue.
