I had been seeing the error message during 'make installer' in my branch after "Translating Resources": sed: RE error: illegal byte sequence It turns out to be caused by the makeSubstitutions function in package/buildpackage.sh attempting to do text substitutions on the contents of a .tiff file, in this case .../sym/package/Chameleon/Resources/background.tiff.in . I put in an 'echo' to capture the erring 'sed' command, here it is (sorry about the formatting): sed s&%CHAMELEONVERSION%&2.2svn&g s&%CHAMELEONREVISION%&2315&g s&%CHAMELEONSTAGE%&2.2svn&g s&%DEVELOP%&zef, Turbo, dfe, netkas, mackerintel, mercurysquad, fassl, Kabyl, Crazor, Dense, kaitek, iNDi, munky, DHP, JrCs, asereBLN, rekursor, mozodojo, meklort, AnV, valv, AzimutZ, Slice, cosmo1t, cparm, Conti, ErmaC&g s&%CREDITS%&bumby, kalyway, Krazubu, Eddie11c, JaS, fassl, XyZ, SMF, flama, Galaxy, sckevyn, MasterChief, smith@@, blackosx, DHP, nawcom, scorpius, macman, dmazar&g s&%PKGDEV%&kalyway, AzimutZ, blackosx, ErmaC, scrax, JrCs&g s&%CPRYEAR%&2008-2014&g s&%WHOBUILD%&chucko&g :t /@[a-zA-Z_][a-zA-Z_0-9]*@/!b s&@LOG_FILENAME@&Chameleon_Installer_Log.txt&g;t t /OSX86/Chameleon/svn/branches/chucko/sym/package/Chameleon/Resources/background.tiff.in > /OSX86/Chameleon/svn/branches/chucko/sym/package/Chameleon/Resources/ background.tiff The erring call is at line 1206 of package/buildpackage.sh.

I failed to mention that this is under OS X 10.9.1, latest Xcode, branches/chucko as of svn r2315.
