Strange, you're the first person I know off that has problems with this. From 
the looks of it your cpp (c pre processor) is ignoring the CPPFLAGS variable 
or somehow it's not passed onto the ./configure script.

Try this instead:
export CPPFLAGS=-Dre_max_failures=re_max_failures2

First, remove the old source tree, since the files are already compiled. You 
can try a 'make clean'. I'd just remove the tree and unpack grep again.
