POSIX. All POSIX shells support it and it's widestly used (eg. autoconf
generated configure scripts internally use it) ...

POSIX. 

sed is required to be available by POSIX, so it's safe to use it and very portable.

Using perl (or awk or ...) instead of sed for string substitutions are options,
but making it mandatory is nothing but overengineering and basically sense-free.

Choose the tool you're familiar with, for most perl packagers this will be perl,
but I prefer to use sed ;)
