Follow-up Comment #1, bug #14587 (project findutils):

See also
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-findutils/2005-08/msg00037.html.  POSIX
requires -L to have a required argument, but -l can have an optional argument.
 So it is only -l that defaults to 1.  The documentation is buggy.

However, looking at the output of the program, it is a bit odd that the error
message for -L refers to -l - that could be improved.
