Yes, but not without being root. This is the main drawback of debian, it seems.

However, I realized just after posting that my problem is known as issue
#131. I thought that a fix was already applied, but apparently it did not
happen. For the moment I'll simply generate the Makefile on my own computer,
which has gawk, and copy it.

Tim: make AWK=awk doesn't work either, same result. (I.e., backslashes in the
Makefile) It would really be good to fix this.
