I think we are both wrong, have searched logs but it is late, but
tomorrow is another day.

The requirement is that a static version of findutils is needed in
Chapter 6, before the dynamic version is built.

The static build of findutils in  Chapter 5 is not needed.

Would you like to prove me wrong, or shall I raise a Bugzilla report?
