solaris link line length problem == buggy sed

My earlier link line truncation problem on solaris was not due to
command line length restrictions (getconf reports a healthy 109kb for

Solaris 2.6 /usr/bin/sed, as used by libtool during the link, has
problems with "long" lines of > 3999 characters, truncating them as it
sees fit.

By putting GNU sed ahead of solaris sed on my PATH the build succeeds.

Should libtool work around such broken sed's during the build phase,
and would patches be considered that did this?
