Attempting to grep the output of test_i18ngrep will not work under a
poison build, since the output is (almost) guaranteed not to have the
string you are looking for. In this case, we have a test_i18ngrep call
which attempts to filter the contents of a file, which was itself the
result of a call to test_i18ngrep. In this case, we can achieve the
same effect with a single call to test_i18ngrep (without creating the
intermediate file), since the second regular expression can be used
without change to filter the original input.

Also, replace a call to test_i18ncmp with test_cmp, since the content
being compared is not subject to i18n anyway.
