'find -follow' isn't defined by POSIX, though it looks like it might
be implemented widely enough that this doesn't matter (POSIX provides
'find -L' as the supported way to achieve this, but GNU find doesn't
support that).

Certainly -follow seems to work fine on Darwin and GNU find - does anyone
know whether it's supported widely enough to use?

(I've not tested the patch, but the idea seems sane enough).

Malcolm
