The documentation seems already to include these, or at least similar, fixes.

The ``-iname`` option is no longer deprecated, but doc/find.texi mentions the deprecation under the ``-warn`` documentation section.  Below is a patch against the latest Git repository to correct this, and to update the mention of the POSIX standard in the manpage to match doc/find.texi:

diff --git a/doc/find.texi b/doc/find.texi
