IRIX lorenz 5.3 08031225 IP20 mips
pkgsrc/print/pdflib uses sed to create Makefile during the configure stage. However, it simply calls sed without hnoring $SED, which might point to some different version of sed than the one in the shell path. If the system sed in the shell path is not compatible enough (which seems to be the case with IRIX 5.3) configure fails.
Configure pdflib on a system with an insufficient sed (first) in the shell path, with SED pointing to a working version.
Not really a fix, but maybe a workaround: USE_GNU_TOOLS+=sed should buildlink make use GNU sed.
