 > I am not familiar with FreeBSD ports, but the point is that in MacPorts,
 gawk is ''not'' a declared dependency of the ports where this problem is
 encountered. These ports use gawk opportunistically, as a consequence of
 the fact that they use an autotools build system.

 Indeed, most {{{./configure}}} scripts will favor {{{gawk}}} over macOS
 {{{awk}}}, as the script will discover {{{gawk}}} first and go with it.

 Right now FreeBSD is still using {{{readline}}} 7.0.5, but has already
 upgraded {{{bash}}} to 5.0.2. As I have {{{gawk}}} installed, I will
 observe how the update proceeds, when they do update {{{readline}}}.

 It looks like they do something to deal with {{{awk}}} vs {{{gawk}}}. This
 morning I upgraded {{{pkgconf}}} and saw

 {{{checking for gawk... (cached) /usr/bin/awk}}}

 Nothing in the package's {{{Makefile}}} (yes, they use Makefiles instead
 of Portfiles...), or any global config file I could find.
