Description Tom Judge freebsd_committer 2018-04-16 17:03:13 UTC
It seems r 284345 accidently guarded a bunch of the LZMA variants of grep under MK_BSD_GREP.  This change seems unrelated to the overall changeset of adding META_MODE support.

Over to committer of r284345.

To be honest, I think the fact that we installed bsdgrep as xzgrep WITHOUT_BSD_GREP was a mistake.

If we bring back some of these variants for gnugrep (which we probably should), I would prefer it be done as a script or something that invokes /usr/bin/grep. The behavior between bsdgrep and gnugrep as they currently exist in base has departed quite a bit. I would also like to not weed through bug reports double-checking that they were actually gnugrep and not bsdgrep disguised as xzgrep.
