:> anything more to add.. i guess no :)
:forgot something. removing gawk will save tremendous 2.5 MB (according to 
:du -h -d0 contrib/awk) of hdd space + size of gawk executable (which i
:cannot measure anymore..).

   Oh, well!  2.5 MB.  wow!  And lets not forget the whole 2 or 3 seconds
   worth of buildworld compile time it saves too!

   All right, all right... approved.  Somebody with commit privs go ahead and
   patch this in, make sure that buildworld still works with the gawk
   binary removed, and then commit it.   If nobody gets to it remind me in
   a week and all mow it down.
