Could be.  I tried using a newer version of sed (4.1.5) but that didn't 
help.  Something in the back of my mind tells me we've seen this before 
on this mailing list, or maybe it was the postgresql list.  But I 
couldn't find any reference to it.

Um, well.  That means you give up compiling GEOS with mingw/msys.  Maybe 
not a great loss, but still probably worth doing.  I did a quick look at 
where sed is used, but all the autoconf stuff is fairly hard to wade 
through (at least for me).  Any sed experts in the house using msys?
