For example, the N command might cause 'sed' to exit in some cases.
Autoconf needs to be fairly conservative about unusual 'sed' commands
such as 'N', as 'sed' implementations are not always bug-free.

No, actually, I was not careful about omitting that.  On the contrary,
I wasn't thinking about that part at all.  But I'm not surprised to learn
that a relatively-uncommon environment needs multiple workarounds, as that
is typical for such environments.

Are you aware of the MPCL_SERVER_373011 environment variable?  It might
make it a bit easier to work around the Microsoft logo problem.  See
