This file would quickly become outdated and thus would do more harm
than good. We should better provide a patch that adds the $(SED)
line. Or just include that $(SED) line. (see below)

We already do have changes that won't ever make it into upstream. The
question is whether the change will do any harm to the non-Gentoo users
of Mingw-cross-env.

So what do you think? Could that $(SED) command cause any trouble on
non-Gentoo systems?

If not, please include the $(SED) line permanently with an explaining
comment in src/gcc.mk.
