yes, the official excuse for this is backward compatibility.

You may remove one of the messages, perhaps both, but the core of my
proposal is still there:

If /usr/xpg4/bin is available, insert it to the path at the beginning
of the configure script, in order to get working sed and awk.

I would prefer this solution.  I'll write a patch if Paul says that he
is going to accept it.
