Use perl instead of sed for t8006-blame-textconv test
In test 'blame --textconv with local changes' of t8006-blame-textconv, using /usr/xpg4/bin/sed (as set by SANE_TOOL_PATH), an additional newline was added to the output from the 'helper' script. This was noted by sed with a message such as: sed: Missing newline at end of file zero.bin. Sed then exits with status 2 causing the helper script to also exit with status 2. In turn, this was triggering a fatal error from git blame: fatal: unable to read files to diff To work around this difference in sed behaviour, use perl -p instead of sed -e as it exits cleanly and does not insert the additional newline.
