Actually the problem is not due to grep but gnulib and perl-5.22. However it is in the grep source tarball.

The one line (one character) fix is:

 sed -i 's/copyright{/copyright\\{/' build-aux/update-copyright

Translation:  Escape the left brace in a perl regex.

I reported this to gnulib over a month ago but got no response. Thought you would like to know.
