	Perry helped me with some localizations on my laptop. We found that
	where a single-partition install is robust single-user, and can call
	grep/egrep fine, split-fs installs depend on /usr to find /usr/bin/grep
	and the links to e and f-grep, and they are shared link runtime so
	depend on /usr/lib.
	Perry observed that he'd expected them to depend on /lib. seems the
	linkage still preferences /usr/lib for the libc/libintl loads.

	/rescue is bloating, but grep seems sensible. Its doable in ed at
	a pinch of course.

	have split fs install, boot single user, or embed dependency on
	grep in rc.d/* and unless you can force the mount of /usr to have
	precedence, you cannot use grep.


	link static, put in /bin path, add to rescue, make use libs in /lib
