I tried to test and build 2.2.4 on Solaris 10. It fails at following position:

checking for grep that handles long lines and -e... configure: error:  
no acceptable grep could be found in  
make[1]: *** [configure-intl] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /kolab/RPM/TMP/rpm-tmp.29563 (%build)

If I remember correctly we had already such a issue (within the  
install script) in the past. The reason is that Solaris does not  
recognize the option "-e" (only -hblcnsviw is used). This is also the  
reason that for some progs I use the grep from sunfreeware and it is  
also in the path /usr/local/bin. If you look to the path where the  
check looks you will recognize that /usr/local/bin is not included.  
This is funny because the .profile or the check over ENV shows  
/usr/local/bin. As I know the option -e is not supported also on other  
OS from this point of view I do not know if this is a good idea to use  
this option even I would support it on my installation IF THE ENV  
would be correctly recognized.

What you think.....? What solution7workaround you think is the best to  
go...not only on my site also on your site?
