My guess is that this is a problem with sed.  Can you please try
installing GNU sed and make sure that Octave uses it when generating (look for the definition of SED in Makeconf)?

There is now a test in Octave's configure script that tries to avoid
broken sed implementations, but apparently the test is not
sufficient.  Would someone please take another look at this problem
and see if there is a better solution?
