Thanks for the explanation.  So somebody should really do the following 
to maintain any files no matter where they are located?
F:	*/*bcm2835*
F:	*/*/*bcm2835*
F:	*/*/*/*bcm2835*
F:	*/*/*/*/*bcm2835*
F:	*/*/*/*/*/*bcm2835*
F:	*/*/*/*/*/*/*bcm2835*
F:	*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*bcm2835*

Or, can a recursive option be added in the script?
