You probably noticed that three headers are automatically generated
from the same one. This is because the lisp preprocessor has to
replace some symbol names with the actual references on the symbol
table. That implies building a list of symbols for "dpp" (the
preprocessor). Other than this, sed is used by the configuration
program (standard tool used by GNU autoconf), but I do not remember
anything else.
