OK. I'll regen the configure.in patch that way.
Note1: the conversion from old-style libtool initialization macros to
new-style can be done on a case-by-case basis after Steve's current
update is committed; it needn't be an "all-at-once" megapatch.
Note2: I mentioned that switching to the new macros would require making
the newlib changes atomically with Steve's update of the toplevel
libtool.m4&friends. This is a red herring; _LT_DECL_SED is /also/ only
provided by the new .m4 files. So we need to make the newlib and
toplevel changes atomically, regardless of whether the newlib
configure.in's use old-style libtool initialization macros or new-style.

This ^^^ looks like Paolo's answer to question (1) from
is yes. I still need an answer to (2), probably from Jeff, and then
I'll redo my whole 10-step procedure and retest tonight.
Once that's done, I'll send Steve the *entire* set of changes (as
produced mechanically by the scripts I posted earlier
along with ChangeLog entries so he can 'absorb' it.
