With a little analysis, we may be able to use the installed sed.
(I'm able to do this on all other Unix platforms)

It's not clear to me if the sed program produces a garbled help_files.sed,
or if the sed program cannot process the commands that are in the

To see what I'm talking about, look in the top-level makefile for the
        @echo Constructing sed-script
and then
        @echo Appending interim-fix for existing html files
Those two chunks of script are building a new file

I'd like to see what (if anything) goes into that file.  (It is automatically
removed a few lines further in the makefile, so you may have to remove

        -rm -f $(helpdir)/help_files.sed
