One of the two buildbots is using a nonstandard $PATH.
Here is a reference to the Single Unix Standard, which defines grep -F.
On the only Solaris box I have access to:
SunOS vanilla 5.8 Generic_108528-19 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100
there are two implementations of grep, and the only one in my $PATH does
not understand -F. I logged in via ssh and ran /bin/sh, which is not a
$ echo $PATH
$ printf %s\\n a b c | /usr/bin/grep -F b
/usr/bin/grep: illegal option -- F
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . . .
$ printf %s\\n a b c | /usr/xpg4/bin/grep -F b
$ printf %s\\n a b c | /usr/bin/fgrep b
