I suspect this is due to a bug or deficiency in awk.  Which
version of NetBSD(?) is your awk from?  The 3.0 family of
releases, perhaps?  I recall changes going in to awk to support
larger and/or more complex regexps a while ago, ref. PR#33392.
You could try to update your src/dist/nawk/ directory to what is
on HEAD and see if that makes any difference (nawk/b.c should be
revision 1.12).
