With what is currently in the book:

PASS: testsuite/follow-symlinks-stdin.sh
make[5]: Entering directory '/tmp/sed-4.3'
make[5]: Nothing to be done for 'testsuite/.log'.
make[5]: Leaving directory '/tmp/sed-4.3'
fatal: making test-suite.log: failed to create testsuite/.trs
fatal: making test-suite.log: failed to create testsuite/.log
make[4]: *** [Makefile:3138: test-suite.log] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory '/tmp/sed-4.3'
make[3]: *** [Makefile:3247: check-TESTS] Error 2

Looking at Makefile.in before and after the sed -

<       testsuite/nulldata.sh testsuite/panic-tests.sh \
>       testsuite/nulldata.sh testsuite/ \

I have changed the sed in my build to

sed -i 's%testsuite/panic-tests.sh%%' Makefile.in

which fixed it for me.
