Yes, HP dropped support for Tru64 in 2012, and a good rule of thumb for GNU code is to not worry about an OS if it's so old that even its own maintainer doesn't worry about it.

Gnulib finally got around to dropping support for Tru64 in 2019, in the sense that we removed some documentation about it (we haven't bothered cleaning up the code). Although we don't worry about Tru64 now, we might accept simple clean patches written by Someone Else, patches that don't affect other platforms.

In the meantime I'm closing the sed bug report as this is not really a sed issue.
