Tools build fine on Ubuntu 14.04. I am unable to reproduce your bug.

Check your gcc version. My host gcc uses 4.8.2

It fails on FreeBSD so that is a 4.11 issue. FreeBSD uses clang so that could be an issue.

This is a bug in the build system of GCC 4.9+, the sed scripts in t-hardfp use nonstandard regexes that require GNU sed. See GCC bug 62097, https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=62097

I tracked the change down to the particular commit by Richard Sandiford and assigned it to him. I would expect him to be reasonably responsive.
