I build sed as part of my mingw-w64 distro. When I saw the
sed- snapshot, I eagerly tried it, but it catastrophically
failed to compile (see [1] for the errors). Miodrag Milanovic figured out
that the following one-line patch is necessary:

diff -aurN sed-

+++ sed-        2016-12-13

        $(AM_V_at)$(HELP2MAN)                                           \

With this, the snapshot builds flawlessly for mingw-w64 (and runs fine,
according to 5 seconds of cursory testing). (While I understand what the
patch is doing - MinGW has executable extensions while ordinary Unix doesn't
- I have no clue how this ended up completely wrecking the build.)

Could you please incorporate this patch into the upcoming release? Thank you
for your continuing work - I'm looking forward to the new release.
