I would start with "which -a grep", to find all the grep programs on your system, and then "file /a/b/c/grep" each of them, to find the one(s) that are PPC only. From that info, figure out how they were installed (e.g., MacPorts are in /opr/local/bin/, Fink in /sw/bin, and so on), and update that package.

I don't think you'll find any greps in any Xcode (/Developer) install.
