6.21.1. Installation of Grep

Prepare Grep for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/tools \
    --build=${CLFS_HOST} --host=${CLFS_TARGET} \

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 Glibc.

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install
