Subject: Adding nawk to bootstrap?

I'd like to add pkgsrc/lang/nawk to the bootstrap kit.  AWK is used 
pretty extensively within pkgsrc/mk, so I think nawk counts as a 
"must-have" for using pkgsrc.  My plan is to extract nawk into 
pkgsrc/lang/nawk/files and use the copy_src procedure currently used by 
the other bootstrap tools.

My eventual goal is to use the bootstrap script to install:

	bmake, bmake-mk, pax, tar, mtree, ftp, pkg_install, sed, awk

and then use pkgsrc itself to register the installed bootstrap files.

Any objections?
