Hi,

This port requires egrep to have working GNU extensions; in this case, it requires being able to match an empty branch. For the time being, use the more up to date version of GNU grep, textproc/gnugrep, rather than relying on GNU extensions in base grep. This was identified in a recent exp-run to test installing BSD grep as /usr/bin/grep and disable GNU grep compatibility in the process.
