The patch uses awk -e which is understood only by GNU awk. This breaks
all Debian CI tests here since Debian installs 'mawk' by default (I
wasn't aware of that before).

It's not a big deal to install package 'gawk' everywhere, but I just
wanted to mention it. I can see no warning/hint in any of the patch's
Hmmm, this also implies documenting a new dependency in all projects
that use gnulib or disabling sc_prohibit_gnu_make_extensions.

Regards, Tim
