the latest CVS checkout of autoconf showed a few regressions on my
Solaris 9 system using mostly native tools. The problem seems to be a
regular expression where a asterisk is applied to a parenthesised
sub-expression. My reading of the sed manual page tells me that the
native Solaris sed does only provide for the asterisk's use with
one-character regular expressions. For example:

--- snip ---
bash> echo '1*23*4' | /usr/bin/sed 's/\(.\)*/x/g'
bash> echo '1*23*4' | /usr/xpg4/bin/sed 's/\(.\)*/x/g'
--- snip ---

I hacked my version of autoconf to pass the tests 63, 64, 66, 67, and
73. Please, consider the patch I send as attachment.
