Note: The only package I know of that uses this, serf, failed to build with version 3.0.0.

comment:5 by bdubbs@…, 6 years ago

Did you use the 4th sed I added yesterday?

comment:6 by Armin K, 6 years ago

That worked, thank you. I updated to 3.0.0 before you did on my system, so the sed wasn't present.
