I got a reply from HP claiming this was intended behavior to comply
firmly to the ANSI C standard.  I'm not sure if they are correct, but
apparently a future GCC will complain about this as well.  See
<URL:http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=11250> for info on
the GCC bug.

I'll keep looking into this, but suspect the only sane thing to do is
to avoid 'char a[] = ("a");' completely in the source of findutils.
