find.1 still documents the old syntax

find -perm +mode

instead of

find -perm /mode

Attached patch fixes this. As my copyright assignment is still pending you
might want to re-generate this yourself, it is a no-brainer, just replace any
-perm +... with -perm /... except for

-.B find /  \t\e( \-perm +4000 \-fprintf /root/suid.txt '%#m %u %p\en' \e) ,
+.B find /  \t\e( \-perm -4000 \-fprintf /root/suid.txt '%#m %u %p\en' \e) ,

where the usage of the GNU extension is superfluous and "-" can be used
