TOOL_GREP in share/mk/


While trying to build NetBSD on a Solaris 11 host system, I've noticed that TOOLS_GREP is not using src/tools/grep, but relies now on the host version of grep (introduced in revision 1.881 of share/mk/

The standard Solaris /usr/bin/grep is too old to build NetBSD (a newer version is though available as /usr/xpg4/bin/grep), but it would be nice to use the grep version present in-tree since it was used before revision 1.881.

Are there any plans to re-introduce TOOL_GREP to use the src/tools/grep tool again?
