That would be a GNU sed (textutils/coreutils?) vs BSD sed issue. I suspect
there are many GNU-isms which are not applicable to their BSD equivalents in
the scripts, as ghostscript get more used on Mac OS X. We probably should stick
to the opengroup posix specifications - there is one for "find", and a
corresponding one for 'sed'.

Hmm, it looks like -E is a BSD-ism and -r is an GNU-ism, but the script itself
definitely needs one of them. Tough. We might have to do case OS) here.
