Log Message:
enhancements to gracefully handle packages which require a non-broken
sed, or perhaps GNU sed.

packges should define USE_GNU_SED if GNU sed is really required,
otherwise we provide ${SED} in the buildlink/bin dir, unless the sed
provided on a given platform is known to be severely broken.

[one could argue Solaris' xpg4 sed falls in the "broken" category, but
for almost all intents and purposes, it is acceptable - define
USE_GNU_SED if a package still fails.]

XXX IRIX is currently listed in _INCOMPAT_SED - this should be removed
if sed on IRIX is known to be good.
