It does.

As the machine in question had to go back into production, I manually rebuilt gawk, and didn't keep any logs. So I have to work from memory here.

The pkg_rr run errored out in editors/xemacs-packages, during some post-'all' check. Now, xemacs-packages lists gawk in TOOLS, which does not manifest itself in

[hf@Hochstuhl] /<3>editors/xemacs-packages > make show-depends
[hf@Hochstuhl] /<3>editors/xemacs-packages > make show-depends VARNAME=BUILD_DEPENDS
[hf@Hochstuhl] /<3>editors/xemacs-packages >

which is probably why pkg_rr thought it safe to rebuild the package between readline and gawk?
