[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#461103: initscripts: unnecessary use of "find | xargs"

Package: initscripts
Version: 2.86.ds1-47
Severity: wishlist

The bootclean.sh script is currently using find | xargs rm, and find |
xargs rmdir.  This could be improved by using find -delete, which is
present since findutils version 4.2.3.  Etch has findutils 4.2.28 so
this doesn't add an unnecessary extra dependency.
