Since that's not in Bugzilla yet it hasn't been (properly) discussed here, so 
let's do that first before just adding those options to the book.

The procps XSCPT is not an issue, it's well known already. We should make a 
final decision on grep's --with-included-regex and verify that if file 
doesn't get --datadir that all the files still end up in the right directory.

I'd like a list of the programs that make use of it so we can determine if it 
actually changes the end result. It could just be an unnecessary dependency.
