Hi All,

Is this a trivial error? Can it be ignored?

I am getting an error during checking of findutils:
FAIL: old_prefix: locate failed, /compilation/findutils-4.4.2/locate/testsuite/../locate: `tmp/locatedb': No such file or directory

In the old_prefix.exp file I find: locate_start p "--changecwd=. --output=$tmp/locatedb --old-format  --localpaths=tmp/subdir 2>/dev/null" "--database=$tmp/locatedb tmp" {}
This tell me that locatedb is an output. Where is it used?

How to solve this?
