I notice you re-opened 5419... I tried recompiling find with the latest
sources from anoncvs, and I still see the problem. The #ifdef block
causes find to skip any whiteouts returned by fts_read(), so I really
have no idea why it's in there. It came from the merge of 4.4BSD-Lite2,
but I don't know what it was doing in Lite2 either.

Around line 374 of distrib/notes/common/postinstall
which gets turned into the various formats of the INSTALL document.
See item #5 (Installing third party packages) of 
for example.

Thanks for looking into these! :)
