Oops, I think it's the OSX arch options I added this weekend - they  
use the -E sed flag that's in BSD sed, but maybe not in GNU sed?  I  
wasn't sure if I should (or how) to only check those parts on OSX (it  
does NOT have anything to do with the OSX app option).  Or is there an  
equivalent -E option that works in GNU and BSD?

Is it OK to check the $system var in configure.in, when it's something  
that's created by an autocof macro?  Or is there an AC macro that can  
do something based on the system?

"Don't you even hate 'em?"
