It may be related to the sed problem we were having in the 1.7 RC
series. Apparently one of scripts relied upon GNU sed which wasn't
installed on people.apache.org. I had been using a custom install of
it, but I thought Daniel had fixed the offending script to not require
GNU sed. 1.7.2 represents the first release in which I relied upon
the system sed, and not my custom one.

I *thought* I'd verified the header file prior to posting the release
for signing, but apparently not. :(

"Project *Management* Committee" :)
