 Hi,
     I'm not 100% satisfied with this patch now. Looking back it fails
 the following case:
 
      -P    Do not follow symbolic links in the file hierarchy, instead con-
            sider the symbolic link itself in any comparisons.  This is the
            default.
 
     I need to add a check for this option to the patch, use stat if
 the `follow links' state is true, otherwise use lstat.
 Thanks,
 -Garrett
