Proof-of-concept: provide a compile-time flag for GNU compatibility

An idea that could use polishing is to re-use the WITHOUT_GNU_SUPPORT to decide
whether sed should attempt to behave in a GNU compatible way or not.

I am leaning towards defaulting to the previous behavior: as Sergey states,
people can always install GNU sed if the want.
