Unfortunately, this is problematic.  Portable sed scripts shouldn't
have comments at all...  Have a look into the `autoconf' manual (type
`i sed RET') for limitations of `sed' on various platforms – maybe
this is no longer of relevance today, but there are high chances that
groff gets installed on older platforms.
