I ran some tests too and I don't think egrep not finding a match is the
problem. egrep will return 0 if there's no match, but it will return
1 if there is _no input_.
So the next question is: is it valid for apex-env not to display
anything, and I think the answer is no (since there should always be
some kind of default configuration). So my next question is: how does
this machine boot without an APEX config?
Al: what does "cat /proc/mtd" say? Maybe it's a very old installation
without APEX? But, no, that cannot be either because flash-apex
checks for the "Loader" partition (i.e. APEX).
Al: did you change APEX on this machine manually in the past?
