Hi Guile

I'm trying to compile guile 3 from source code under Mac OS 10.15 with macports, because the 3.0 version is not available in macports. after compiled bdwgc from the source code, I can compile guile 3 successfully, but it failed at 'make install' with the following error:

Must remake target `install-data-hook'.

After a while of digging into the Makefile, I found out it caused by the 'sed -i -e ..." for:


## Instantiate a template.

INSTANTIATE =                                                                   \

  $(SED) -i -e 's,[@]pkgdatadir[@],$(pkgdatadir),g'                             \

            -e 's,[@]pkglibdir[@],$(pkglibdir),g'                               \



install-data-hook: libguile-@GUILE_EFFECTIVE_VERSION@-gdb.scm


        echo " $(INSTALL_DATA) $<                               \

$(DESTDIR)$(libdir)/$$libname-gdb.scm";                         \

        $(INSTALL_DATA) "$<"                                    \

            "$(DESTDIR)$(libdir)/$$libname-gdb.scm";            \

        $(INSTANTIATE) "$(DESTDIR)$(libdir)/$$libname-gdb.scm"

The /usr/bin/sed on Mac OS 10.15, the BSD sed, it's a bit different from the sed on Linux, the "-i" option must be followed a SUFFIX option.

Simply, change it to sed -i "" -e ... works for me, there would be a better solution for it.
