There is no need to send such email also to the web-hurd mailing list.
I've only do so once or twice in the past when the emails contained
information I wanted to have integrated into the web or wiki pages.  But
such technical questions or discussions are fine to be sent just to

This is glibc's way of telling you that it wants to have gawk installed
instead of mawk.  As Ivan Shmakov already suggested, it may work if you
do a ``AWK=gawk && export AWK'' before running `cross-gnu', having gawk
installed, of course.  If you confirm that this works, I can add it to
the `cross-gnu-env' shell script.

Be sure to do a ``rm -rf $ROOT/src/glibc.obj'' to clear up the bogus
files before re-running `cross-gnu'.
