Ported sed

I tested it and it works nicely (but of course it can't be committed
until the transition to SVN is complete.)

The vendor.diff wouldn't apply for me (I don't know if this is a
problem with the diff file or I was failing to run patch in the way
the diff expected.) I ignored this for now and just added sed to my
usual config.

The policy for what default configs things should be added to can be
found here: http://mailman.dslinux.in-berlin.de/pipermail/dslinux-devel/2006-November/000344.html

If it's something likely to take up a significant amount of RAM - I
have the idea that the fact that sed doesn't is one of its features -
then I think you can use old non-ram config file for your card to test
it.  If you don't have one on hand you'll have to get it out of CVS
history as they don't currently exist.  I think perhaps we should
re-introduce such a thing for testing purposes.  Perhaps one config
that wastes some space to simply work on all of the ram supported
cards but doesn't include anything besides the core features?  In any
case doing this sort of testing without some such config file is a
minor nuisance.
