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.

Xcode for Lion (and the last Snow Leopard Release) contains all of the previously separate "Unix" environment installs. All bundled up as one "App."

 As far as I know, grep has always been part of OSX.

I use MacPorts. It has versions of "*grep," but I do not have grep installed via macports for the ports I have installed. … "port list installed"
