There might be some breakage indeed, but certainly not a lot.  But  
such a change would also have to be syncchronized with a release, so  
I was mostly wondering why in the first place was it chosen not to  
use it ?

On the other hand, maybe some grepper could translate that in 'basic  
mode' for me ?

sed -E 's|\$\(DESTDIR\)[[:space:]]+\$\(|\$\(DESTDIR\)\$\(|g'

Now that is the first level question.
