Another non-portability - ! can be used in filenames without quoting,
and thus might appear in (an admittedly unusual) $(localstatedir), which
then messes up sed.  So autoconf advices using '|', rather than ',' or
'!', when setting up a substitution of a filename.

I'm preparing a patch to fix all of these concerns.
