	Assuming you have a SPARC system the answer I got in the past was
	basically "tough luck, get a different model of SPARC..." I suspect
	it's a weird code generation issue on SPARCstation 2 CPU's since
	that's where there is a known problem with awk.

	I basically have to rip apart the scripts and generate the files
	on my Solaris box to get it to work... B^(.

	If you aren't on a SPARC then I have no idea although maybe it's
	a related gcc code generation problem on multiple arch's.
