I don't see the point in using -i - since that in turn causes one
process per file, so you don't really gain anything, do you?

Furthermore -i is not supported on mac, and in my linux-xargs manpage
-i is flagged as being deprecated.
(-I would work on both), but again: Using -i / -I and thus the implied
-L 1 nullifies the benefit, doesn't it?

find $packagename -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 775

should do the trick
