Thanks! After briefly looking into this, I noticed that it'd be good to
test whether xargs groks -0 too (on Solaris 8 it doesn't, even though it
does understand -e). I think the attached implementation would be ok.
Reviewers: I'll commit early next week unless there are objections.

* compile.el (grep-find-use-xargs): Test "GNU" compatibility of
xargs too in addition to find, and fall back to using generic
find+xargs if the latter is available. Thanks to Karl Janmar for
the initial implementation.
