This isn't portable, e.g. on OpenBSD you get:

stat: unknown option -- c
usage: stat [-FLnq] [-f format | -l | -r | -s | -x] [-t timefmt] [file ...]

Is there a more portable way to get at this information?

In general it's quite hard to write shell scripts that run everywhere.
Maybe just keep the original find-based code, but filter some errors?
