Hi Arnold,

yes we're using the tarball. We're altering the extension/Makefile.in
because there's a problem when building gawk in a cross environment.

# During building gawk is called which can't be run when cross compiling
edo sed -e '/check-recursive all-recursive: check-for-shared-lib-support/d' \
    -i extension/Makefile.in

So we need to run autotools afterwards.

The Autoconf version which is run is indeed 2.69. 2.5 is just the name
of the slot it resides in for our package manager to work properly.
