22.214.171.124 Empty Makefiles
On some systems (NetBSD, FreeBSD, AIX 4.1, and Mach10), `configure' may
fail to properly create the Makefiles. Instead, you get an error which
looks something like this:
sed: 1: "\\@^ac_include make/pat ...": \ can not be used as a string delimiter
So far as I know, the bug here is in `/bin/sh' on these systems. I
don't have access to a machine running any of them, so if someone can
find a workaround that avoids the quoting bug, I'd be most grateful.

It should work to run `bash configure', instead of using `/bin/sh'.
You can get Bash from `ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu' and mirrors.
Another possible cause (reported for NeXT) is a bug in the `sed'
command. In that case the error may look like this:
Unrecognized command: \@^ac_include make/paths.make@r make/paths.make
In this case, installing GNU `sed' should solve the problem. You
can get GNU `sed' from the same places as Bash.
