You get to join the rest of us who have a , "I didn't read my email
before posting award." (Forgive the attitude, i'm in a really nasty
mood tonight and should have my keyboard taken away :)

The confirmation to the answer given to someone who posted this
question before just came in 3 minutes after your question. (Upgrade
sed to 4.05.) It'll also be in the FAQ once the HTML regenerates:

(Adding it to the FAQ is probably not the right solution. The BLFS
instructions should probably not require so new a sed and if they
do they should probably say so. CCed to blfs-dev for that reason.)

/me notes that Larry beat me to it. But _my_ answer is betta ;P
