Without the ".bak", FreeBSD's (version 5 and higher)
sed will choke on this.

Does your sed work with:

	sed -i.bak ....

(i.e., no space between -i and its argument?  If so, that'll
work for both of us.)

Otherwise, the most portable would be to avoid sed -i and

	sed $RE < file > && mv file

or use "perl -i.bak -pe $RE"
