Since this is only a problem during bootstrap, how about moving the
command to some target that only gets run as part of bootstrap?

I would also support simply trying to run Sed at that time, without
any configure-time checks.  People who bootstrap can be trusted to
have Sed, I think.  If they don't Make will barf and let them know.
