I've been seeing these warnings at the end of a `make install` for the past
few weeks now. They seem to be trivial (although I'm basing that on my ability
to smoke-test the compiled binaries from my local checkout…) and are of the

sed: 1: "1i .lf 1 doc/meintro.me
": command i expects \ followed by text

BSD sed(1) (or at least the version that ships with macOS) doesn't support
same-line text insertion, so a portable alternative to the above would be:

.lf 1 doc/meintro.me

I've attached the output from the entire build run. Also attached—though I
doubt it's relevant—is output from a failed `make install` which may or may
not be expected to fail.
