no, this means you are cheating: in egrep, regexp  \(ac\|as\)_
would match string  (ac|as)_    -- but that's not what we want to check.
You have to adapt the regular expressions for egrep.

See macro AT_CHECK_ENV for an interesting example related to this.

BTW: AT_CHECK_ENV uses $GREP -E, not $EGREP.  Do you know why?
Shouldn't $EGREP be more portable?

Have a nice day,
