Ignoring the crash (for this reply), it sounds like the change in the SED 
line, from \+ to * is what was required to get this build properly making 
the fmt_*.h files under lion.   This is one of the changes which will be 
coming out in a subsquent jumbo patch.

Right now, Solar has his time tied up on the korelogic contest, mostly.  It 
may be that we make a community Jumbo-4a patch, in the interim.  There are 
numerous things which have been added (along with this build issue).  I 
still have some changes to get completed this weekend, but we can probably 
produce a 'non' official jumbo enhancement, vs having over a dozen patches. 
This would simply be rolling all of these patches up into one single patch, 
properly applying them all, in order.    Then we can post a single J4a 
tarball, and a diff file to go from J4 to J4a.   I will try to get this out 
in the next day or so, my time today is shot doing other 'honey-do' stuff.

As for the 4 new formats, and crashing on Mac, I am not able to diagnose 
this.  Actually, I have not even looked at the formats themselves at all, so 
have no idea about them.  However, if someone with lion can build them, and 
have a look, it would be appreciated.
