 Your packages are outdated, `gawk` in particular. You need to run
 sudo port selfupdate
 sudo port upgrade gawk
 sudo port upgrade outdated
 This is partially the fault of MacPorts. Configure script will use
 whatever version of `awk` it finds first. If you wouldn't have `gawk`
 installed, it would simply use the one from the system and that would work
 as expected. But if you do have `gawk` installed and outdated, that `gawk`
 will be broken and then the broken `gawk` is used to do stuff with

 Gnuplot could have listed a build dependency on it, but it's not really
 needed (since the system version can be used anyway) and that's a global
 problem that affects lots of packages.
