I have a failing test on Solaris 8 Sparc with Sun Studio 11, all other tests

1 of 5 tests failed.

FAIL: tests/zgrep-f (exit: 1)

Further investigation showed that the problem is a call of the generic system-wide grep from Solaris in zgrep which doesn't understand several of the flags. Replacing
the invocation with a gnu grep solved the problem:

--- a/zgrep.in
+++ b/zgrep.in
@@ -26,7 +26,7 @@ case $1 in

However, I think it would be nice to detect a grep during configure time
which knows the flags or let the packager choose a grep to be included
without patching the source.
