Well, the fact is that the slocate recipe "steals" the findutils locate
and updatedb commands and use slocate and slocate -u instead. So when
Compile tries to symlink the findutils' ones it finds them to be yet
used by someone else. You can choose which to use: the slocate or the
findutils ones. As there are really no crucial differences between them,
I'd suggest you to keep the slocate ones and just ignore those messages.
