Debian grep does not link to libpcre:

  $ ldd /bin/grep =>  (0xb7ef4000) => /lib/ (0xb7d9a000)
  /lib/ (0xb7ef5000

This is because libpcre is installed into /usr/lib/, which is not guaranteed
to be available at boottime (might be on a different partition), while
/bin/grep is an essential utility in init scripts and should be available at
all times.
