yes, I'd like to keep that change, and I'd like fix mktest.sh.
(Unfortunately, I don't have access to many platforms.)

I can see several ways to fix it:

1) Use egrep -f
2) Use -f or multiline patterns, whichever is supported.
3) Most of the script can be replaced with one call to awk,
with a long parameter list.

ad 1) and 2) 
Which platforms have grep which doesn't support -f?
Could we ignore them for now?  We can switch to variant 2) later, when/if
there si a need.

ad 2) I think the most convenient way would be to use a shell function.

ad 3) Is the best option, IMHO.
It would help if I had access to Solaris, but it is doable even without it.

Stay tuned,
