this version of grep on a HPUX 11.31 server, it complained

I could not find the hard-coding by "strings grep |
/usr/local/bin/grep -I libintl".  However, when I did "od -cx
/usr/local/bin/grep>grep.hex" and used vi to search grep.hex for "l
i" (small L, three space, and i), I found the hard-coded string.
Please update the run-time dependencies on the GNU grep 2.7 web page
to reflect this, and also supply a copy of libintl.so to be

When I did "swlist -l file | grep -I libintl" on our server, it found
/opt/gtk2.6/lib/libintl.so.  Unfortunately, the path to libintl.so is
hard-coded in GNU grep 2.7, so it will not use this alternate
location of the library.

I am sorry, the people usually on this mailing list are not related to this particular binary of GNU grep that you received, and in fact are unlikely to have access to HP-UX systems altogether.

The right address seems to be address@hidden (from the "Contact Us" page on the website you mentioned).
