I recently noticed that on my NetBSD machine
I got the sed package installed, since some package
or other had USE_GNU_TOOLS=sed in its Makefile, and
NetBSD is not listed as having a GNU sed.

While that may be true, I haven't noticed a case yet
where NetBSD's sed wasn't up to the task.

Is there an actual problem with using NetBSD's sed,
or should NetBSD just be added in as having
a working sed?
