[alpine-devel] xzdiff in xz package is broken on alpine linux

I found this by running make check. It's probably due to xzdiff being a
shell script with some hair regexs and musl having some regex
incompatibilities in the name of standards compliance.

Another one that bit me today was in a script with

    grep '^[a-z]\+'

On alpine you need to say

    grep '^[a-z]+'
