Hi there

I've tried your buildscripts from v2.2.4 through these latest ones,
and they all seem to have a little error with the grep when checking
for tarballs/patches... I get this line twice:

grep: Invalid content of \{\}

Once before the "Checking for required tarballs in
/mnt/lfs/usr/patches" and once before "Checking for required tarballs
in /mnt/lfs/usr/patches".

I've looked through the code but am not sure why it would give this
error...   Any ideas?
