As reported in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=724766

the mc package uses find -perm +xxx. This GNU extension
syntax is deprecated and does not work in GNU findutils 4.5.11 and
later. Please change to find -perm /xxx instead.

The new syntax was introduced in 4.2.25 (October 2005) and should
therefore be available on any relevant system.

A quick google search for "find" manuals suggest that non-GNU implementations probably don't understand the "/" syntax. So I think we'd need to autodetect (configure, or runtime).

Let's wait bugreport about unsupported syntax.

At current time, fixed as [50734c071674c83412dc42dca663534add6ae7d1].
