Hi,

just trying to update gnulib code for libidn and run into the error in
the subject. It's the latest gnulib from master.

Maybe I miss something ? I am not too familiar with sed to see
something obvious.


The steps I took:

$ rm -rf gl gltests

$ ../gnulib/gnulib-tool --import --local-dir=gl/override --lib=libgnu
--source-base=gl --m4-base=gl/m4 --doc-base=doc --tests-base=gltests --
aux-dir=build-aux --with-tests --avoid=fcntl-h-tests --avoid=stdlib-
tests --avoid=string-tests --avoid=sys_stat-tests --avoid=time-tests --
avoid=unistd-tests --avoid=update-copyright-tests --avoid=wchar-tests
--no-conditional-dependencies --libtool --macro-prefix=gl --no-vc-files
autobuild csharpcomp-script csharpexec-script error fdl-1.3 gendocs
getline getopt-gnu gnupload maintainer-makefile manywarnings
pmccabe2html progname update-copyright useless-if-before-free valgrind-
tests vc-list-files version-etc warnings

$ make
[errors]


When I cd into gltests/ and 'make -j1 V=1':

rm -f signal.h-t signal.h && \

$ sed --version

Any help appreciated.

sed: -e expression #6, char 53: unknown option to `s'
The template for this comes from modules/signal-h. But the values
come from Automake variables in the Makefile. It looks like gnulib
has substituted values that contain the C operator ||. The syntax
error comes from the fact that 2 out of 5 of these sed expressions
use the '|' character. They should probably use the '/' character.

Please try this patch:

ok, I pushed the fix:


2018-02-04 Bruno Haible <***@clisp.org>

signal-h, monetary, strings: Fix build failure in some cases.
Reported by Tim Rühsen <***@gmx.de>.
* modules/signal-h (Makefile.am): In the GNULIB_* substitutions, use '/'
as delimiter in sed command, not '|'.
* modules/monetary (Makefile.am): Likewise.
* modules/strings (Makefile.am): Likewise.
