I've an almost-ready package for GNU grep 2.5 (I need it for solaris).
The only remaining problem is a build dependancy: GNU grep requires
the gettext binary to build. A
BUILD_DEPENDS+=         gettext:../../devel/gettext
doesn't look right, because on NetBSD (and possibly others)
gettext is part of the base system.
What is the right way of solving this ? I'm thinking at:
.if ${OPSYS} == "SunOS" 
as I didn't find predefines for GETTEXT in pkgsrc/mk/*
