Sure. Tramp is autoloaded, its symbols are available only after loading.

I'm not a heavy awk user. The current awk based implementation has been
contributed by somebody else, IIRC. Do you know another way to use awk
for encoding/decoing base64, without "od"?

The current Tramp implementation is in the two variables
`tramp-awk-encode' and `tramp-awk-decode'. If we could find another
implementation, which runs also on your LibreCMC or OpenWRT machine, we
could add it to Tramp.

Maybe we should enhance the error message.
