I too hesitate to commit to libtool for something so small and optional.
How about making this feature available only on systems that
provide working dlopen and shared library support?

What about moving the "real" Perl grep to /usr/libexec/pgrep and making /usr/bin/grep exec it? This way, grep could be moved to /bin while keeping the same absolute path.

The feature should still be opt-out for people who do not want any absolute paths in the executable (likely Windows people), but it could be enabled by default and it would be portable.

Reuben, would you give it a shot?
