Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] mac os x: use awk selected by build system rather than first in path

In general: autoconf's AC_PROG_AWK only guarantees that $(AWK) is nawk

a bug in ChangeLog.awk for using non-portable awk constructs. That said,
on several platforms, plain 'awk' lacks essential features of nawk, so
whether or not we also need to patch ChangeLog.awk, this patch is good.

ACK.

Thanks.  Will push this in a minute.

As an aside, this specific failure is a pain. It _only_ shows up here with a reasonably freshly installed box.

After installing the MacPorts packaging system, the problem doesn't
manifest.  Even if MacPorts gets uninstalled right after the install.
MacPorts obviously does "something" (more complex than setting a global
path differently) which it's uninstall routine isn't undo-ing. (grrr) :/

So, I'll rebuild the OSX box soon (probably tomorrow), and then test
things from a fresh install again to see if there are other gotchas.

If things work ok then, we're actually making decent progress to having
OSX being a workable platform. :)
