I ran into this last week.

export SED=sed

or equivalent will solve this.  I'm not sure where the root cause is but this
will get you going.

I just ran into it, too.  It comes from a mismatched libtool.m4.

Kaffe, for instance, embeds a copy of libtool.m4 as filename acinclude.m4.
FWIW, the procedure for updating kaffe to use CVS libtool appears to be
something like:
  cd kaffe-1.0.7
  cp /newlibtool/share/aclocal/libtool.m4 acinclude.m4
  /newlibtool/bin/libtoolize -c -f --ltdl
  patch kaffe/kaffe/ to link app with @LIBLTDL@ per the libtool docs
  sh developer/
and possibly also apply the patch I posted to bring kaffe up to autoconf2.5x.

'Course, I haven't actually gotten it working with the new libtool yet,
and I'm generally a libtool nincompoop, so take that with a grain of salt :-)
