[platform-testers] new snapshot available: grep-2.13.16-86a70

The grep -i '^$' bug is big enough to merit a new release.
I expect to release grep-2.14 early next week, so here's a snapshot.
Please test this and report any problems.

There are .sig files here, too:


** Bug fixes

  grep -i '^$' could exit 0 (i.e., report a match) in a multi-byte locale,
  even though there was no match, and the command generated no output.
  E.g., seq 2 | LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 grep -il '^$' would mistakenly print
  "(standard input)".  Related, seq 9 | LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 grep -in '^$'
  would print "2:4:6:8:10:12:14:16" and exit 0.  Now it prints nothing
  and exits with status of 1.  [bug introduced in grep-2.6]

  'grep' no longer falsely reports text files as being binary on file
  systems that compress contents or that store tiny contents in metadata.
