Builds fine on GNU Guix master.  Log attached.

Would you be willing to also provide a GZIP compressed version of future
sed releases too?

Since since sed-4.3, only XZ tarballs were provided.  This is not a
problem but still unfortunate; it makes sed-4.2 (2009) currently the
latest version that we can use in our ongoing efforts to create a full
source bootstrap of the GNU (Guix) System.

For some background see this blog post, the
next reduction will remove programs like sed from the bootstrap seed.
XZ can only be built after we have a fairly recent GCC and glibc.
