I don't believe the problem at hand has much to do with how grep was
compiled, but you can find out by using the readelf utility

2.4.2 compiled with glibc regex:
    readelf -a grep | grep re_match_2
    <no output>

2.4.2 compiled with included regex:
    readelf -a grep | grep re_match_2
34: 08055960     6 FUNC    GLOBAL DEFAULT   12 re_match_2
