Arguably, one should be listing /usr/pkg/bin later in your $PATH
than /usr/bin; another solution would be for build.sh to use absolute
pathnames or to set and export a more controlled version of $PATH
which gets inherited by the commands it runs...
Or, as a completely unrelated solution, one might try to persuade the
maintainers of gawk to not nag about regex contructs that work just
fine with the historical AWK written by Aho, whomever , and
: With apologies to Mr. Weinberger, I remembered two of the three
without checking the manpage. :-)
