The Grep package contains programs for searching through files.

6.22.1. Installation of Grep

When cross compiling, the configure script does not determine the correct values for the following. Set the values manually:

cat > config.cache << EOF

Prepare Grep for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/tools \
    --build=${CLFS_HOST} --host=${CLFS_TARGET} \
    --without-included-regex --cache-file=config.cache

The meaning of the new configure option:


When cross-compiling, Grep's configure assumes there is no usable regex.h installed and instead uses the one included with Grep. This switch forces the use of the regex functions from EGLIBC.

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install
