There was another issue also besides the fact that "-E" is not supported by all implementations of sed.

I rewrote the regex to not need -E, please try
rev 1.10.

The script is a /bin/sh script, but uses constructs like $(...) instead of `...`, which is not supported by /bin/sh on Solaris, and I believe AIX and HPUX as well.

I suspect that it works on NetBSD and probably on Linux as well since, at least on Debian Linux anyway, because /bin/sh is a hard link to /bin/bash or is a restricted version of bash which supports the $(...) construct.

My suggestion is to either change the shell that is uses, or use the `...` construct to make the script portable.

Does the attached diff work for you?


I'll try it out as soon as my current run of pkg_rolling-replace is completed.
