bug#17493: new snapshot available: grep-2.18.146-ebf3

There have been no reports of build or test failures, other
than the Solaris /bin/sh one for which Paul Eggert wrote
the patch listed below.

Some have raised the issue that egrep and fgrep are now
shell scripts (they were executables in 2.18), and thus
won't work in a system without a bourne shell. We expect
to accommodate the usage of those obsolescent wrappers
for "grep -E" and "grep -F" on such fringe systems with
a 2.20 release that will follow soon after.

I expect to release grep-2.19 tomorrow or Thursday, so any
testing you can do before then would be most welcome.
