I think that is has one slight flaw: "egrep -F" shouldn't work.
So the {e,f}grep.mat.c should set matcher_hardwired=1, and
setmatcher would contain:

if (matcher_hardwired)
      error (2, 0, _("you cannot change the matcher of %s"), program_name);

Other from that, yes, installing full binaries is a sane solution.
Yet I want grep to include several ways of supporting egrep and fgrep,
which can be chosen at configure time.  Thus I'll merge your patch with the
one I posted yesterday.

But yes, I'm almost convinced that separate binaries should be the default.
