This is fine with me, thank you.

Fine with me, too.  Please note though that tr is used in
lib/autotest/general.m4 and lib/autoconf/status.m4 already.

To cope with limited grep, coreutils is still missing the Automake
patch.  I guess you could also choose to ignore this, as both of these
failures happen on AIX <= 5.1.  Advising people to

there helps get around the missing Automake patch, too (but not the
patch we're currently discussing).

We still don't know what that Solaris failure was about, though, I
guess.  Which is one reason I think this change may still be quite
