Yes. And just to be sure: You would still create a patch file? Or
would you put the find xargs sed chain somewhere in the spec

That is the idea, put it into spec file directly into %prep
section so no patch is needed at all.

And stick to find -exec; there is almost no reason to use xargs.

Since when? "find -exec" spawns a new process for every file it finds,
while xargs collects arguments until "it reaches a system-defined
limit" (usually ARG_MAX).

...which is essentially the same as what "find ... -exec ... +" does.

indeed, thanks for the hint! Twenty years ago GNU find did not exist on
every system... ;)

Twenty years ago, GNU find didn't suport it yet.
