Bug#1255: Automatic update of the locate database includes AFS and ALEX FS!

Package: findutils
Version: 4.1-2

The cron.daily scripts included in that package does not check
wether AFS or ALEX are installed on the host. Thus the updatedb
utility will do a truly _GLOBAL_ find to update the database.

As a fix to this add the --prunepath="/afs /alex" option by default.
I would also like to hint that the install script should add the /home
branch and the /var/spool/mail directory because of privacy issues.

I am using 0.93R5 together with AFS3.3, NIS/AMD and Monsanto NQS.
The look-and-feel is identical with all our Unix systems using X11R6 and
OSF Motif 1.x
