Thankyou :-) You clearly qualify as a sed wizard, 1st class!

However, in analysing your solution, I learnt something new about sed - namely,
the t command.
So, I can use the simpler script:

':a;s/\(-m [0-7]*\)6/\17/;s/\(-m [0-7]*\)4/\15/;ta'

Now, to build that into libtool...

Thanks for the help!
