I agree but I am not the one who schedules releases here.

Thanks for the pointers to specific commits!

Perhaps it would make sense to make a new release soon?

... and the other error was fixed by http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gnulib.git;a=commitdiff;h=4af4a4a7

This was fixed by http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gnulib.git;a=commitdiff;h=4da63c58 but there was no release of findutils since then.

I find that the gnulib mountlist.c also needs to be updated to avoid an "undefined reference to makedev" error.

Glibc 2.28 removes some obsolete functions that are used by gnulib components included in the findutils source. This causes build failures:

freadahead.c: In function 'freadahead':
freadahead.c:92:3: error: #error "Please port gnulib freadahead.c to your platform! Look at the definition of fflush, fread, ungetc on your system, then report this to bug-gnulib."
#error "Please port gnulib freadahead.c to your platform! Look at the definition of fflush, fread, ungetc on your system, then report this to bug-gnulib."

Copying the current gnulib version of freadahead.{c,h} to gl/lib corrects that build failure.
