Ugh.  I looked at File::Find weeks ago, and it was so traumatic an
experience that I put it out of my mind.  It's been totally rewritten, and
in a very unportable manner.  Lots of substr()'s and rindex()'s instead of
regexes, presumably for speed, but it makes it impossible to port, as-is.

Does anyone have any guidance here?  I am tempted at the moment to just use
the File::Find from 5.005, which is far more portable.  Can someone who
knows -- perhaps the person(s) who rewrote File::Find -- help out here, a
bit?  In order to make this portable, it's going to have to be
substantially rewritten (again).
