           Summary: Compiling: configure uses incorrect grep reference:
                    grep vs $GREP
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.10.2
          Platform: SPARC
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: isa at tjcaa.com
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

I hope this is not a duplicate.  I did a quick search for it and did not find.

Configure finds grep in /usr/xpg4/bin/grep (not in my $PATH)
But, when it checks for "Warnings", it references grep and not $GREP
So, the error grep: illegal option -- e  is flagged.

I replaced grep with $GREP and the compile continues normally.
    line: 17388

I am using Solaris 9.

I do see other instances using grep vs. $GREP, but I am not a Perl programmer
so I did not study if they are valid or not.
