This problem is xen/arch/x86/boot/ calls ld with:

-Ttext $(RELOC) -o

RELOC is set in xen/arch/x86/boot/Makefile to $(BOOT_TRAMPOLINE), which is also set in that file:

BOOT_TRAMPOLINE := $(shell sed -n 's,^\#define[[:space:]]\+BOOT_TRAMPOLINE[[:space:]]\+,,p' $(BASEDIR)/include/asm-x86/config.h)

NetBSD's core 'sed' doesn't seem to like that.  Using gsed seems to work.

So there's 3 fixes:

1) Change sed to gsed and make gsed a requirement (seems icky)
2) Hard-code BOOT_TRAMPOLINE to 0x88000 (seems ickier)
3) Fix the sed invocation to make it core NetBSD sed friendly.  This seems like the right solution, but beyond my sed knowledge.  Any takers?
