Can we get around these problems easier in the binary-branch?
I envision a binary libtool that could do all of the processing
itself, without needing to use sed or shell until it needed to
call a compiler.  Since users can use GNU sed on the two affected
platforms, there's a simple workaround, and that leads me to a
more protracted but more complete solution to the problem.
Is that part of the current plan, and do you all think it
should be?
