These all just removed function prototypes for standard functions. The
maintainer for findutils needs to use/rely on the standard headers to prototype
standard functions, otherwise problems like this will occur. There is no
functional difference between the compiled versions with/without patch.

Should someone contanct the maintainer and have them fix it?
