[bug-gawk] building gawk requires an awk?

I was not able to build gawk 4.0.0 on a GNU/Hurd machine that didn't
have any awk, the ./configure script failed at the end:

config.status: creating Makefile
./config.status: line 1169: awk: command not found
config.status: error: could not create Makefile

Is this a known bootstrapping issue?  Same happened for 3.1.8.  I looked
in README but didn't find anything obvious.

Btw, building 'mawk' first and then gawk 4.0.0 works.  Running self
checks didn't work because there is no 'cmp' on the system either...
