You can download a release of findutils in which this problem is
fixed from ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/findutils.

The releases on alpha.gnu.org are for testing purposes, so please
take the time to download the release and verify that your
problem has been solved.  Once the release has been sufficiently
tested, it can be uploaded to ftp.gnu.org for everybody to use it.

Spurious or unexpanded gl_XALLOC.   Maybe integration of gnulib is a problem (e.g. looking in wrong m4 directory?):
