Fixed with a different kind of change (don't use xargs).

Not sure if you would consider it a bug, but 'find/testsuite/sv-34976-execdir-fd-leak.sh' expects 'xargs' to be in $PATH.

When bootstrapping GNU/Linux with Guix, the only 'xargs' that we have at this point is the one we just built; thus, we use the attached patch, which changes the test to use the just-built 'xargs'.
