Yes, thanks, I fixed that in the commentary.

That shouldn't be a showstopper, as Awk ports are widely available
for Windows, and the GNU coding standards have said for many years
that it's OK to assume Awk.  For this particular case, though,
it's easy to remove the dependency on Awk so I did that.

I altered things so that the file is not needed, which sidesteps
the problem.  I agree with Andreas that we should come up with a better
way of dealing with the 8+3 problem, though, so as to be less intrusive
to mainline development.

Installed as trunk bzr 112072 and marking this bug as done.
