Subject: [hwloc-devel] hwloc-1.3.1 install failure w/ older GNU sed

On my old Red Hat 8 box, I see the following failure from "make install"
of hwloc-1.3.1:

 From that usage output, I suspect hwloc shouldn't be using "-i".

Version on the failing system is "GNU sed version 3.02".
So, this portion of the Makefile should be rewritten not to use the -i
(in-place) option which appears specific to GNU sed-4.x
