Fixed in CVS.  The attached patch (against findutils-4.2.16) fixes the problem.   The problem is simply fixed by using he correct name for the function - base_name() not basename().

This correction will be released in findutils-4.2.17.

whwn compiling findutils 4.2.15 on IRIX 5.3 I end up with:

gmake[3]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/findutils-4.2.15/find'
cc  -g   -o find  find.o fstype.o parser.o pred.o tree.o util.o version.o ../lib/libfind.a ../gnulib/lib/libgnulib.a

In order to resolve this I added #include <libgen.h> to find/pred.c (not strictly necessary), and in find/Makefile I set LIBS=-lgen

Maybe you can incorporate this into the next release. If you need further information, please let me know.
