I just accross this too. MSYS' sed doesn't support the -i argument.
On the vlc msys guide 
<http://developers.videolan.org/vlc/msys-compile.txt> they say to use 
sed 4.0.9 (newer versions fail to compile), but that doesn't work 
either. It gives another error (I copied sed 4.0.9 to /c/ffmpeg/):
c:\ffmpeg\sed.exe: -e expression #1, char 22: Unknown option to `s'

I'm trying to come up with a way to not need that sed call there.
