Keygrip v fingerprint ?

I see on :

references to both --with-keygrip and --with-fingerprint.  When I try
--with-keygrip on gnupg2.0.26, it appears not to be a valid option.

The only other time I have seen a reference to a keygrip (and I don't remember
where I saw it), it seemed to me that a keygrip looked just like a fingerprint.

Could someone please explain the difference between a keygrip and a fingerprint
or point me to a relevant document ?
