If you're using 5.0.6, you have a grep that understands characters encoded in
$ grep '\00111\0011' /usr/include/sys/errno.h
        ^^^^^ ^^^^^ octal encoding of tab
#define EPERM           1       /* Not owner                            */

For this particular problem, you might take a look at

$ errno 1
          EPERM (1): Operation not permitted
$ errno eperm
          EPERM (1): Operation not permitted
$ errno perm
          EPERM (1): Operation not permitted
