Yes, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.  Especially since the
Makefile's in lib-src and src are also based on an old version of Unix
Makefile's, and so direct copy is not possible without also changing
those two quite heavily.

It would work, but it has a disadvantage of requiring Sed for building
Emacs.  We don't require that currently.
