FWIW, {e,f}grep have been reintroduced in Debian with grep 3.8-2.

Now, the stray \ warning is causing trouble. libtool has a problematic
grep \-L:
which is embedded in an important number of packages:

Jochen Sprickerhof has already reported the problem in libtool,
including a patch:
but it will take a lot of time before all of the concerned packages get
a fixed libtool.

I am willing to temporarily silent those warnings, once the affected
packages have been identified, so we can submit bugs and fix them.
