IRIX lorenz 5.3 08031225 IP20 mips
pkgsrc/graphics/plotutils-nox11 calls "awk" during compilation. It does not 
take into account the ${AWK} setting, but simply uses what "awk" is first in 
the shell path. Unfortunately, in case of IRIX 5.3 at least, the OS's awk is 
not sufficient. Problably the GNU version of awk is needed.
Probably the same issue applies with pkgsrc/graphics/plotutils.
Should pkgsrc honor ${AWK}?
Compile pkgsrc/graphics/plotutils-nox11 on IRIX 5.3 (or some other system with 
a limited-capability awk first in the shell path): it will break.
does the trick. Maybe this should only be done if ${OPSYS} == "IRIX"? I am not 
sure about later version of IRIX's awk.
