That is expected.  As you said, it is merely "by default" and there
are mechanisms like config.mak provided for people to override them.

b) needs a special (GNU) grep argument (-a from memory). This I
resolved by downloading and packaging GNU grep. However, I hope this
has not introduced a new dependency.
Read the Makefile and find SANE_TEXT_GREP, perhaps?
Ah - read the manual heh?. Generally, I just download, unpack, and run configure.
I do not mind needing an extra tool - as long as it is only for the build.

And, since you have something about it in your (still unread) install Notes - it has not slipped in by accident.

Thanks for helping to spread Git to minority platforms.

I do not use it much (I prefer to package "distributed" src tarballs, but when testing a potential fix - git can be extremely useful!

All in all, thanks for an easy to port to a "minority" platform!
