I'm pretty sure that sed is not the issue here. As far as I can tell OS X's = version of sed works just fine. Here's the real problem (all this is about=20 1.0.5, but I guess it's identical in 1.0.6): The line missing_dir=3D`cd $ac_aux_dir && pwd` from doesn't work under Mac OS X. Anyway, missing_dir=3D`cd $ac_aux_dir` works just fine. NB: you have to generate a new 'configure' to get this to work. I have no=20 idea *why*, but what happens is that zsh responds with the new path after=20 the cd. It's like CDPATH in bash, but that isn't set. Thus you get two=20 lines in missing_dir... I've isolated these lines in a small test script, but the behavior was=20 different! Something in configure seems to cause zsh to behave this way...
