Comment (by matthew at linuxfromscratch.org):

 This causes problems for at least Binutils and GCC due to them not
 catering for 2 digit numbers in their configure checks for texinfo.

 There's a patch for binutils at http://sourceware.org/cgi-
 bin/cvsweb.cgi/src/configure.diff?r1=1.277&r2=1.278&cvsroot=src.  It might
 be nice if we could get that into a sane looking sed.  If not, the patch
 will have to do, I guess.

 There are  2 patches for GCC at  http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-
 patches/2007-09/msg01271.html and http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-
 patches/2007-09/msg01729.html.  Given that upstream will probably release
 GCC-4.2.2 real soon now, we may as well leave the Texinfo upgrade until
 that's out.
