Definitely awk.  Mike was asking because I had "gawk" as a specific dependency of the libvirt Homebrew
package.  It was needed when I first started the packaging for 0.8.5.

However, just tested the 0.8.6 release now, and it compiles/works ok with the OSX provided awk.  Gawk not installed.

Looks like good timing of that question on Mike's part, and I'll submit a new 0.8.6 package that doesn't have the gawk dependency.

Thanks Eric. :)

Regards and best wishes,
