 Log Message:
 Update to 2.4.2 with latest patch (2.4.2-mlb2). Provided by OBATA Akio
 in PR 31895.
 Patch changes unknown.
 Mainstream changes between 2.0 and 2.4.2:
 Version 2.4.2
   - Added more check in configure to default the grep-${version}/src/regex.c
     instead of the one in GNU Lib C.
 Version 2.4.1
   - If the final byte of an input file is not a newline, grep now silently
     supplies one.
   - The new option --binary-files=TYPE makes grep assume that a binary input
     file is of type TYPE.
     --binary-files='binary' (the default) outputs a 1-line summary of matches.
     --binary-files='without-match' assumes binary files do not match.
     --binary-files='text' treats binary files as text
 	(equivalent to the -a or --text option).
   - New option -I; equivalent to --binary-files='without-match'.
 Version 2.4:
   - egrep is now equivalent to `grep -E' as required by POSIX,
     removing a longstanding source of confusion and incompatibility.
     `grep' is now more forgiving about stray `{'s, for backward
     compatibility with traditional egrep.
   - The lower bound of an interval is not optional.
     You must use an explicit zero, e.g. `x{0,10}' instead of `x{,10}'.
     (The old documentation incorrectly claimed that it was optional.)
   - The --revert-match option has been renamed to --invert-match.
   - The --fixed-regexp option has been renamed to --fixed-string.
   - New option -H or --with-filename.
   - New option --mmap.  By default, GNU grep now uses read instead of mmap.
     This is faster on some hosts, and is safer on all.
   - The new option -z or --null-data causes `grep' to treat a zero byte
     (the ASCII NUL character) as a line terminator in input data, and
     to treat newlines as ordinary data.
   - The new option -Z or --null causes `grep' to output a zero byte
     instead of the normal separator after a file name.
   - These two options can be used with commands like `find -print0',
     `perl -0', `sort -z', and `xargs -0' to process arbitrary file names,
     even those that contain newlines.
   - The environment variable GREP_OPTIONS specifies default options;
     e.g. GREP_OPTIONS='--directories=skip' reestablishes grep 2.1's
     behavior of silently skipping directories.
   - You can specify a matcher multiple times without error, e.g.
     `grep -E -E' or `fgrep -F'.  It is still an error to specify
     conflicting matchers.
   - -u and -U are now allowed on non-DOS hosts, and have no effect.
   - Modifications of the tests scripts to go around the "Broken Pipe"
     errors from bash. See Bash FAQ.
   - New option -r or --recursive or --directories=recurse.
     (This option was also in grep 2.3, but wasn't announced here.)
   - --without-included-regex disable, was causing bogus reports .i.e
     doing more harm then good.
 Version 2.3:
   - When searching a binary file FOO, grep now just reports
     `Binary file FOO matches' instead of outputting binary data.
     This is typically more useful than the old behavior,
     and it is also more consistent with other utilities like `diff'.
     A file is considered to be binary if it contains a NUL (i.e. zero) byte.
     The new -a or --text option causes `grep' to assume that all
     input is text.  (This option has the same meaning as with `diff'.)
     Use it if you want binary data in your output.
   - `grep' now searches directories just like ordinary files; it no longer
     silently skips directories.  This is the traditional behavior of
     Unix text utilities (in particular, of traditional `grep').
     Hence `grep PATTERN DIRECTORY' should report
     `grep: DIRECTORY: Is a directory' on hosts where the operating system
     does not permit programs to read directories directly, and
     `grep: DIRECTORY: Binary file matches' (or nothing) otherwise.
     The new -d ACTION or --directories=ACTION option affects directory handling.
     `-d skip' causes `grep' to silently skip directories, as in grep 2.1;
     `-d read' (the default) causes `grep' to read directories if possible,
     as in earlier versions of grep.
   - The MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows ports now behave identically to the
     GNU and Unix ports with respect to binary files and directories.
 Version 2.2:
 Bug fix release.
   - Status error number fix.
   - Skipping directories removed.
   - Many typos fix.
   - -f /dev/null fix(not to consider as an empty pattern).
   - Checks for wctype/wchar.
   - -E was using the wrong matcher fix.
   - bug in regex char class fix
   - Fixes for DJGPP
 Version 2.1:
 This is a bug fix release(see Changelog) i.e. no new features.
   - More compliance to GNU standard.
   - Long options.
   - Internationalisation.
   - Use automake/autoconf.
   - Directory hierarchy change.
   - Sigvec with -e on Linux corrected.
   - Sigvec with -f on Linux corrected.
   - Sigvec with the mmap() corrected.
   - Bug in kwset corrected.
   - -q, -L and -l stop on first match.
   - New and improve regex.[ch] from Ulrich Drepper.
   - New and improve dfa.[ch] from Arnold Robbins.
   - Prototypes for over zealous C compiler.
   - Not scanning a file, if it's a directory
     (cause problems on Sun).
   - Ported to MS-DOS/MS-Windows with DJGPP tools.
 See Changelog for the full story and proper credits.
