Thanks for this fast feedback. Your explanation sounds very reasonable. As
you may have noticed this a makefile out of openwrt with is mainlined there.

1) I downgraded to grep 2.20. Issue is gone with the same environment. So
this is in my eyes a regression.

2) I will also open a report at fedora, maybe the use some strange setting
in building the new packet.

3) I will send a short notice to openwrt asking if they think it is fine to
use ë or ö. I personally have a strong opinion on that ;)
