Ken, FWIW my scripts do the following to avoid scanning paths that won't 
(or shouldn't!) see any changes during a build:

find . -xdev ! -path "./logs/*" ! -path "./home/*" ! -path "./proc/*" \
   ! -path "./sources/*" ! -path "./tmp/*" ! -path "./dev/*" \
   ! -path "./var/log/*" ! -path "./srv/*" \
   -newer timestamp
