    89  {{{automake}}}:: 
    90   GNU automake is needed if you intend to build using 
    91   "./autoreconf". Version 1.9 works. 
    92  
    93  {{{autoconf}}}:: 
    94   GNU autoconf is needed if you intend to build from the 
    95   darcs sources, it is ''not'' needed if you 
     89 {{{autoconf}}} and {{{automake}}}:: 
     90  These are needed if you intend to build from the 
     91  darcs sources, they are ''not'' needed if you 
    9692  just intend to build a standard source distribution.

    109106 {{{sed}}}:: 
    110   You need a working {{{sed}}} if you are 
    111   going to build from sources.  The build-configuration stuff 
    112   needs it.  GNU sed version 2.0.4 is no good!  It has a bug 
     107  Most Unix installations and Cygwin/MSYS on 
     108  Windows already come with `sed`, so you're probably OK. 
     109  GNU sed version 2.0.4 is no good!  It has a bug 
    113110  in it that is tickled by the build-configuration.  2.0.5 is 
    114111  OK. Others are probably OK too (assuming we don't create too
