Solaris' /usr/xpg/bin/sed seems to take at most 100 expressions with
option '-e':

  sed: Too many commands, last: /^lib\/locale\/no@nynorsk\/LC_MESSAGES$/d

The above line appears with package mail/tnef (version 1.1.2 doesn't
compile cleanly while 1.1.4 does) when I try

  $ bmake print-PLIST

and the 'nynorsk' expression is the hundredth (of about 250).

Any ideas how to work around this?
