[blfs-dev] Question about lm_sensors

Hi all,

In the lm_sensors instructions, there is a parameter that can be added to
the make command to build sensord. Here is the description:

> PROG_EXTRA=sensord: This parameter enables compiling sensord, a daemon
> that can monitor your system at regular intervals. Compiling sensord
> requires RRDtool. Compiling RRDtool 1.4.6 requires a sed: 
> sed -i '/ sv_undef/d' bindings/perl-shared/RRDs.xs.

Does anyone know what the sed command is used for? It is not required to
build RRDtool-1.4.7, and sensord builds fine without it. Is it required
for run-time, or what?
