[pass] [PATCH] Remove mention of the GREP_OPTIONS environment variable.

GREP_OPTIONS is not defined by POSIX and is not portable to non-GNU
systems. Even in GNU grep the variable is deprecated:

       This variable specifies default options to be placed in front of
       any explicit options.  As this causes problems when writing
       portable scripts, this feature will be removed in a future
       release of grep, and grep warns if it is used.  Please use an
       alias or script instead.
