Thanks for the new regex testing code where it still fails on OS X
(10.15.6 (19G2021)) and it printed this in the log:

   test-regex: re_search 'i' on 'İ' returned -1

Confirmed that flaw affects grep too,

My guess is that macOS doesn't uppercase 'i' to 'İ' in Turkish. That would explain the test failure. At any rate, the Gnulib test should defend itself against that sort of misbehavior. I installed the attached Gnulib patch and updated grep accordingly.

Jeffery, a revised test-regex.tgz tarball is attached. You can test it the same way as before:

tar xf test-regex.tgz
cd test-regex
make check
