thanks for your bugreport. From my side, I wouldn't love to carry this kind of 
patch over long time, without getting it applied upstream. So we need to get 
it into there first. I asked Ton about integration and he requests two things 
as requirements, which sounds reasonable for me:

* find/wc needs converted to pure perl (using File::Find which is part of core 
* postfix paths should be discovered/configurable by ./configure

So if the patch fits this, I would happily forward it to upstream and if it 
gets accepted into SCM, I will apply it to the package asap.

Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
