The text of scripts/mysql_find_rows.sh says:

Prints all SQL queries that matches a regexp or contains a 'use
database' or 'set ..' command to stdout.  A SQL query may contain
newlines.  This is useful to find things in a MySQL update log.

In other words, this script is used with the update log. But
the update log was removed in MySQL 5.0.

I suggest that the script be left intact in the 4.1 trees, but
removed from the trees for 5.0 and up.

Alternatively, if the script is useful for something besides update
log files, please indicate what. Thanks.

How to repeat:
See above.

You also need to update makefiles.

And mysql.spec.
Also please get in touch with the build team - they may have external scripts for packaging and distribution that try to use this file.

Unable to verify dependencies or ownership of this script. I'm putting it back to verified.

Or even analysing as I would need help to progress this bug.
