When running `make check` on findutils-4.9.0, I get one test failure:
FAIL: tests/xargs/verbose-quote.sh

Upon further inspection of the test logs in /tests/xargs/verbose-quote.log, I see:

FAIL tests/xargs/verbose-quote.sh (exit status: 1)

This test passes when /bin/sh = bash, and fails when /bin/sh = dash.
