I can't find an answer for that question in the archives. You presented the 
argument that using sed instead of REINPLACE_CMD will make ports compatible 
with older versions of FreeBSD without adding extra dependencies, but xpdf 
depends on freetype2 which does use REINPLACE_CMD, turning your refusal to 
use it here into a mere token gesture (I actually submitted this as a patch 
file to avoid exactly that sort of thing).
