This is going to be hard -- buildsteps are defined at config time, and
are fixed for a builder -- you can't define specific buildsteps for a

Note that you *can* capture the output of 'find' into a property
(SetProperty) and then use that in a subsequent step.  But dynamic
creation of steps is not possible.
