Noted. I'm not sure what to do about it offhand; I assume it can wait
a few days.
The problem with sed/gsed is not solvable without compounding the issue or
tool names based on OS. Mac users with macports and the GNU tools
can place /opt/local/libexec/gnubin before /usr/bin in their path before
building XEmacs. the gnu bin directory contains links to all the GNU tools
with their original names intact.

True, but that ship has sailed to some extent; the packages require
GNU make, and have done so for many years.

I don't see the relevance:
Sorry, I made a mistake with the make/gmake issue.
$ /usr/bin/make --version
