Why should it? What if on some system you have to pass some compatibility
flag to grep? Ignoring GREP_OPTIONS would make that impossible.

If we want the build system to fix this, I think we should pass the -F flag
to grep when invoking it. That way we can set GREP_OPTIONS when needed and
force the grep in pcre to use fixed strings.
