[platform-testers] new snapshot available: grep-2.24.13-bed6

I plan to release grep-2.25 this week, so here's a snapshot of
the latest. Please beat it up and report success and failure here.

Thanks to Paul Eggert for fixing so many bugs (and especially
for the mbrtowc workaround in gnulib), and to Assaf Gordon for the
initial patch to make many of grep's diagnostics more informative.

[In case you're wondering why the mbrtowc work-around matters,
here's the story: I was dismayed to learn that even with the very
latest Fedora, glibc and grep-2.23 or grep-2.24, this

  printf '\344' | LC_ALL=C grep .

would print "Binary file (standard input) matches".
We should never get that "Binary file matches" diagnostic
when using the LC_ALL=C locale. Thanks to Björn JACKE
for noticing and reporting that. See
for full details. ]
