Boot loader.old, then rebuild awk, then rebuild the loader. (Be sure to not
overwrite loader.old when you install!  Maybe copy loader.old to loader.good
until you know the new loader works.)  This is a result of the awk breakage and
is at this point a FAQ on this list.  Please keep up with this list if you are
running -current.
