Ah, I'd forgotten about the Windows find.

Alternatively, if find is in the same dir as the windows dir, then
keep looking.  That way you do not have to install bash when you
install cygwin.  (I'm assuming that bash is not required.)
Btw, if the build itself does not need find per se, you could also
just implement the relevant part of find in terms of
Perl's File::Find.
