[Buildroot] [PATCH] package/grep: fix busybox aliasing

When grep package is selected, it should be installed at the same exact
location where busybox installs it too, this way the grep/egrep/fgrep
executables will end up overwriting the busybox provided ones.
Busybox installs *grep executables in /bin, grep package in /usr/bin.

Moreover, egrep/fgrep is using autotools SHELL variable to execve the
grep executable with correct options, SHELL is defaulted to /bin/bash
which is usually not available on target.
