[PATCH 04/12] grep: add a test for backreferences in PCRE patterns




Add a test for backreferences such as (.)\1 in PCRE patterns. This
test ensures that the PCRE_NO_AUTO_CAPTURE option isn't turned
on. Before this change turning it on would break these sort of
patterns, but wouldn't break any tests.
