Yeah, it's a lot simpler too.  I didn't find this while searching.

My original fixpaths had problems with regex syntaxes (various grep and sed
disagree on whether to want \+ or +, solution was to replace with \{1,\})
and sh:s disliking exit -1, an updated version of fixpaths is attached,
although the change is probably better, as it eliminates the
need for a separate file all together - unless there's some specific reason
to have one.  This new fixpaths also corrects a bug where the old version
would not allow a substitution to be blank. (-Dblah= file)

-------------- next part --------------
# fixpaths  - substitute makefile variables into text files

die() {
  echo $*
  exit 255

test -n "`echo $1|egrep '\-D'`" || die $0: nothing to do - no substitutions listed!
test -n "`echo $1|egrep '\-D[^=]+=[^ ]*'`" || die $0: error in command line arguments.
test -n "`echo $*|egrep ' [^-]'`" || die Usage: $0 '[-Dstring=replacement] [[infile] ...]'

sed `echo $*|sed -e 's/-D\([^=]\{1,\}=[^ ]*\)/-e s=\1=g/g'`
exit 0
