  1. Update version to 1.2

    This updates the version now so the future tagging of 1.2 will
    match the code.  Also, I do not like patchlevel version numbering.
  2. Version bump to 1.1

  3. Do not grep directories when recursing

  1. Move -lz out of the Minix special case, where it doesn't belong

    and back into the general case.
  2. Restructure the Makefile so that multiple operating system

    checks are not necessary.  It may be prudent, at this time, to
    redevelop the build system based on autoconf.

  1. This removes the include to <sys/limits.h> in grep.c which is not

    necessary since grep.h includes it but also replaces that include
    with an include to <limits.h> for portability, or something
    approaching it.

    - Be explicit on command line checking, instead of relying on patterns,

    mkilian authored committed
      which may be NULL (e.g. -e '').
    - let add_pattern() decide how to deal with empty patterns, don't do
      magic in read_patterns().
    This unbreaks stuff like grep -e '', and makes grep -f <file> more
    POSIX compliant. Semantics for grep -f /dev/null (or any other empty
    file) may be questionable, but this case isn't specified by POSIX,
    and matching nothing at all seems to be sane.

    -x option with the first patch i sent.
