I took a quick look around... on darwin and fbsd, /usr/bin/sed exists
but not /bin/sed. Gentoo linux has /usr/bin/sed linked to /bin/sed,
and a couple year old redhat distribution has /bin/sed only. So a
path search for bin/sed isn't going to work everywhere (as typically
one doesn't have /usr in PATH, no executables there), and weird path
settings could still get you the wrong one. Maybe the best thing is
to just check for them in /bin and /usr/bin manually. Anyhow it looks
like I was looking at the wrong script (later in the thread...)
