Details

gps and liuche upgraded our 10.6 MBP's to Lion and are now encountering failures with egrep in configure when writing confdefs.h. egrep fails with "Regular expression too big."

We had built nightly yesterday on 10.6 without issue. Interestingly, others have reported success building on Lion. Also, the version of grep between 10.6 and 10.7 did not change (GNU 2.5.1). And, running the `sort | egrep` manually in an existing bash shell seems to work.

I'm inclined to believe our build environments became busted after the upgrade. But, it would be nice to identify the root cause and resolution in case it impacts others.
