I've applied your patch.  Mnay thanks for your contribution.  I did
change a few things though :-

1. Arguments to Texinfo commands are enclosed in {} not (), and so a change 
   to find.texi was required in order for "make" to succeed.

2. I added test suite tests for the -E option (and the -e option).

3. I changed the type of check_existence from into to enum and added
    some comments to locate.c.

I've attached the modified patch, which has already been checked into

Regards and thanks again,
