GNU has a habit of adding many additional useful extensions to
libraries tools... which is great if you are only using GNU tools, but
a pain for musl libc, BSD and other users :)

On a related note - test build of NetBSD-current with the latest
device-streams is at:
https://sync.absd.org/amiga/current/installation/misc/ (Full build
https://sync.absd.org/amiga/current/ )

I'll hold off for you to dig through the gnu sed gordian knot :) and
maybe an a version with an updated README, and then commit to the tree
for real and get a pullup to at least netbsd-10 (and maybe netbsd-9)
