may i ask kindly to reformulate that statement so that it works with

I'm perfectly happy using modern extensions to these tools:)

If you want this to work with alternative versions, please send a tested
patch for us to incorporate. (Either modifications to the commands so
it works with both or else alternative versions which configure chooses

a couple of regex experts looked at it, and the reason it didnt work is
simply a bug: the \ before d is wrong. apparently the author meant to
escape the makefile variable that follows, but that is not necessary and
so the backslash gets passed on.

find attached a patch that works correctly with gnu sed and busybox sed.

zdenek, since alasdair does not seem to react, would you mind applying
this patch for a quick test, see that it generates both linker scripts
(.export.sym) correctly (exactly the same output than before) and merge
it ? thanks!
