As the original porter of the gawk and gsed ports, I remember having
a lengthy exchange about naming these two ports.
By default GNU awk is installed as gawk, with awk linking to it:
Saturn:/usr/local/bin marius$ ls -l *awk
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 4 Feb 21 2006 awk -> gawk
-rwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 803996 Feb 21 2006 gawk
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 3089 Feb 21 2006 igawk
-rwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 806200 Feb 21 2006 pgawk
(Yes, this is not a MacPorts installation...)
