[Dovecot] BUG: Bad grep when building dovecot?

Is dovecot *really* that picky about grep, or did it just happen to pick
up an autoconf that's being overly pedantic?
I saw this message a couple of times when googling, but no particularly
good solution presents itself. I'll probably give it a new GNU grep
just to get it to shut up, but I'm a bit surprised.
I tried to compile dovecot in an OpenSolaris 2008.5 system in a zone
(which is quite a bit more minimal than base OpenSolaris).
bash-3.2# uname -a
SunOS postfix-s0 5.11 snv_86 i86pc i386 i86pc
bash-3.2# ./configure --help
`configure' configures dovecot 1.0.12 to adapt to many kinds of systems.
bash-3.2# which grep
bash-3.2# grep -v
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . . .
bash-3.2# which egrep
Error in configure:
