That's not a problem with awk, that's a problem with your system
she-bang handling. The above would work with FreeBSD or MacOSX,
but wouldn't in most other Unices.

Because the she-bang generally accept one single argument. On
Linux, gawk would be called with the "-re-interval -f" argument.
On Solaris, it would be called with "-re-interval" argument and
not "-f" argument.

You can do it as:

<<
#! /bin/sh -
":" +0 && "exec" "/usr/bin/gawk" "-Wre-interval" "-f" "$0"
