I think Kamesh determined the problem. (Kamesh, please correct me if I'm

configure looks for a "suitable grep", but the criteria is simply "supports
long lines" and "supports the -e argument". Our buildstuffs expect grep to
have support for the -o argument, too, though. Our Solaris build
environment has both Solaris grep and GNU grep, but Solaris grep (which
doesn't support -o) was getting chosen by configure.
