Interesting.  I bumped into the same problem on -current, but also had the
problem if I tried using gawk from the ports (d'oh.  I've just realised,
our awk is GNU awk).

You can get around it by installed nawk from lang/nawk first, and then
doing "make AWK=nawk" you build it.

Internet connection, $19.95 a month.  Computer, $799.95.  Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
