Karl, I see that I messed up in June, and committed a make-stds.texi change to a vendor branch in Savannah's CVS repository for gnustandards, as opposed to doing it in the main branch. (My knowledge of CVS is no longer what it was, and I wish Savannah would switch to Git, but I digress...). This was the patch to remove egrep and fgrep from the list of portable tools, discussed here:


Because of my mistake, since then when I ran Gnulib autoupdate I installed the vendor-branch version, whereas when you ran autoupdate you installed the main version. We've had dueling updates.

I just now fixed the glitch by installing the make-stds.texi change into gnustandards here:


and propagating this into Gnulib as follows (also attached):


Sorry about the confusion.
