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.

Jim's point is that if you run './configure GREP=ggrep', that should fix
it at configuration time.

Actually, I was talking about setting it from the user's standpoint,
but if it works via configure, that'd be even better (currently I don't
see such code, though).

I just tried, it doesn't work. Essentially, the invocation of grep in zgrep
needs to be adjusted.

Best regards
