This particular grep statement is used to validate the `tzpath` variable. Apparently it is easy enough to achieve what I was going for using vanilla grep with no options, so I've created GH-24200 to fix the issue.

I notice that there are other uses of `-q` and `-E` in the configure file, but presumably those are on more optional paths.

@martin.wheatley.home: Can you check to see if GH-24200 fixes your issue?

Also, can you clarify whether this happens with a plain `./configure` invocation, or are you specifying `./configure --with-tzpath='/usr/share/zoneinfo:/usr/lib/zoneinfo:/usr/share/lib/zoneinfo:/etc/zoneinfo'` yourself?
