This change would seem appropriate even if we don't support building

I don't think users of find should need to add a file-system specific
option to the command line just to get it to work.

It would be like if there was a separate version of ls for every
filesystem, eg. ls_ext2, ls_xfs, ls_resierfs, ls_vfat - OK - maybe
this is a bit extreme, but I think it illustrates my point.
