Looks like problem comes due to old versions of findutils on the only linuxes I have for testing (RH9, latest official findutils packages).
Sorry for the bug report sounding rude, I was heavily annoyed while porting software from linux, and because I did not see any answer to the cited thread in bug-findutils, making me believe the options are still not available.

Bug can be closed if findutils are now posixly correct.

I believe that those options now exist in findutils-4.2.18.  Which ones do you contend are missing?

xargs does not support SUS options as laid out in http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/7990989775/xcu/xargs.html
A patch for adding some missing options was posted to bug-findutils in MARCH 2004:
