 I'm an actual Mac OS X 10.11.6 user. On my Mac I have no 'nawk' at all.
 I don't think it comes with the system. Someone must have added it to
 yours at some point.
 I recompiled those Apple awk sources, which are definitely original
 lineage, and it results in the same program as my /usr/bin/awk.
