You're thinking of the sed breakage from last June.  It croaks with the
same errors, but the suggested test of diffing the %DIKED files comes back
with the expected changes (malloc -> xmalloc, etc.).  freebsd-native.h
matches the one on my other -current builders. I even tried reinstalling
sed to be safe -- no joy.

If the comment in freebsd-native.h is representative, its some screwup in
libiberty.  But those files haven't changed in eons.
