[openssl-dev] [openssl.org #4448] Solaris pod install "sed" problem for OpenSSL 1.1.0 pre4

The following line in Configurations/unix-Makefile.tmpl is non 
standards-conforming and breaks using Solaris sed:

               sed -e ':a;{N;s/\n/ /;ba}' | \

The man page tells me, Solaris sed mandatory needs a newline before the 
closing "}". The above construct throws errors when executing 
PROCESS_PODS during the make target install_man_docs:

   Label too long: :a;{N;s/\n/ /;ba}

Since I didn't find a way to include a verbatim newline in 
Configurations/unix-Makefile.tmpl that survives to the generated 
Makefile, I instead applied the following patch:

-              sed -e ':a;{N;s/\n/ /;ba}' | \
+              $(PERL) -p -0 -e 's/\n/ /g; END {print "\n"}' | \
                sed -e 's/ - .*$$//;s/,/ /g'
         set -e; \

The perl based solution should work everywhere.
