grep 2.3-7 is broken (was Re: compiler issues and some booboos)
It seems there is a problem using grep 2.3-7. I got the same problem when I
upgraded libc6 from slink to potato on my SparcClassic but has gone away after
upgraded grep to 2.3-5. I got a reply from Sharkey who told me that 2.3-5 is
working well even on ultrasparc (2.3-5 is still available from
ftp://lix.polytechnique.fr/pub/Linux/debian/sparc/exp if you need to downgrade
Is there somebody who would want to check why it breaks ?
I don't have time myself to work on.
