More questions:

Can you make the package, as it exposes the breakage with 1.9.6,
available somehow?  Either by putting it up on a website somewhere
temporarily, or by sending a tarball to me (off-list, please)?

Which sed do you use?
  sed --version

should answer that, if it's GNU sed.

Do you have the environment variable POSIXLY_CORRECT set?

This error message comes from g++.  Most likely the directory

was not created in your build tree.  Can you confirm that after running
configure, the directory does not exist?  It should exist, and if this
is a new build tree, then it should contain a file Fasta.Plo that
contains a `# dummy' line.  If the directory does exist, is it maybe
unwritable by you for some weird reason unknown to me?

The issue seems to be with Automake's _AM_OUTPUT_DEPENDENCY_COMMANDS

If you can't make the package available, can you post the relevant parts that are responsible for dealing with Fasta.cpp?
