But no: the lines in John's output starting with "AWK=gawk" show that  
gawk is already installed on his system. But John, I can't get the  
ncurses/ncursesw install to fail on my MacBook Pro, with or without  
gawk installed. Either way, it installs just fine.

First question: how is gawk installed on your system? With MacPorts,  
or with Fink, or manually? What does "which gawk" say? What about sh?  
Do you have a weird version of sh installed somewhere? What does  
"which sh" say?
