Process -e optarg verbatim

When encountering an -e argument, sed currently mallocs a string to COPY the
optarg -- with '\n' appended. The appendage does not seem necessary -- indeed,
the same call to add_compunit processing the sole command (given without -e)
passes the *argv verbatim: without making a copy, and without appending

The patch eliminates the seemingly redundant malloc/string-copying.
