Fixed in busybox git:

$ busybox find --help
BusyBox v1.22.0.git (2013-03-28 13:17:16 CET) multi-call binary.

Usage: find [-HL] [PATH]... [OPTIONS] [ACTIONS]

Search for files and perform actions on them.
First failed action stops processing of current file.
Defaults: PATH is current directory, action is '-print'

	-L,-follow	Follow symlinks
	-H		...on command line only
	-xdev		Don't descend directories on other filesystems
