while doing some patching on the now removed Mosaic port I had seen
currupted files from REINPLACE_CMD on a HEAD machine (world from
2004-04-08). Some files had been shortened, others had size of zero
and some went fine.

changing the REINPLACE_CMD to

.for file in $(file_list)
	cp file file.bak
	sed -e '....' < file.bak > file

worked without problems for all files.

Anybody else seen problems with REINPLACE_CMD lately ?
