Hah, the man page for GNU find is pretty confusing (or rather, senseless):

       -ipath pattern
               Behaves in the same way as -iwholename.  This option is
               deprecated, so please do not use it.

       -wholename pattern
               See -path. This alternative is less portable  than -path.

I wonder why they would deprecate "ipath", if "[i]wholename" is less portable.

POSIX seems to define path, so ipath would seem like a more obvious choice: 
(I expect ipath to be more portable than iwholename because of this).
