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,

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.

This is caused by the MIPS build of gcc requiring a GNU sed. It is the only architecture we support that has a need for GNU sed. It seems this will not change and I believe GCC says GNU sed is required.

Check the host sed command to see if it is GNU sed and if not build a local copy. No need to add it as a dependency package a host has to install.
