yes, probably.

having USE_GNU_TOOLS+=awk in xmlcatmgr would indicate that the
package, in general, requires GNU awk.

_TOOLS_OPSYS_INCOMPAT.awk+=IRIX-*-* in indicates that GNU
awk should always be pulled in for IRIX as the base system awk is too
broken for "normal" use.

so they play a related, but not identical part. does that make sense?
