There may very well be other places that choke, but I didn't claim this 
patch fixed all issues. :) I only stated that it fixed something very 
specific: makepkg now works with find from busybox. I've not yet 
encountered other issues, but if and when I do, I'll be certain to 
identify and send along a patch, provided I'm still using pacman.

Thanks for the style hints, I'll fix those up.

I was unaware you were actually aiming to be portable beyond GNU given 
the reliance on bash. But you're right, the solutions offered should if 
anything be more portable, not less :). I'll find a better fix for the 
empty dirs and the inode discovery.
