Does that not work for you?

Unfortunately not, as grep gets installed as ggrep to allow explicit
selection of greps. Sorry, I didn't thought of this when I wrote my
previous email. Looks like for me the explicit selection with
would be best.

That's not needed, since zgrep can already accommodate that.
Just set the GREP envvar to the name you happen to use:

 export GREP=ggrep

Then, it should "just work".

Ok, but this would also move the burden of "fixing" to the enduser,
whereas I as packages could take care of it by hardcoding the path
with a configure option.

In your usecase you assume the user of gzip is also the person who
is compiling it. In my case this is not true as I am compiling it
for other people who use it and expect to use it without any
modifications from them apart from installing the package, and
I cannot change the user environment at package installation.

Best regards
