   Oh, sorry -- I see now that I forgot to mention that it was
concerning El Capitan.

   I checked out pkgsrc mere hours before I wrote the mail.  (Note: I
use the fossil repository, so if anyone made any changes within the last
24 hours or so I might have missed those).

   I'm pretty sure at least nbsed is needed, unless these are isolated
case where the packages need to be fixed -- I didn't actually
investigate why the RE's failed.

   It's easily checked against boost-docs; that package directly fails
with the sed-error.  When I build gpg2 it's a dependency which fails
(dir* something, I can't recall (t'was at bedtime)).
