I ran into a variety of small issues:
1) This line:
sedit 's/^gcc_version_trigger[ ]*=.*$//' Makefile '*' :
contains whitespace in the sed pattern. It's quoted here, but by the time it
is actually used, the quotes have been lost by passing it to a shell

3) There seems to be a bug in extra/gcc: The addmakeflags GCJ=... GCJH=...
does not take account of the fact that addmakeflags removes whitespace
between its arguments, leading to the single flag of GCJ=...GCJH=... being
I'm a little confused why all this is going wrong for me - given that
