I applied this and there were still one or two (very little)
gawk-specific things (one in the Makefile.in [therefore in the Makefile]
and one in the mktxt script).  I've attached a complete diff against
gpm-1.19.6 which includes Alessandro Rubini's changes to manpager.  This
*should* make gpm work with any awk (I think).

Note that it would probably be nicer to make configure find which awk is
used and use that instead of awk in doc/Makefile.in.  Unfortunately,
I've never used autoconf before in my life so I'll leave that to someone
else!

[I'm also sending a copy to the gpm list; I'm sending them seperately so
that when people follow up, they'll only go to the appropriate list]  

Mark
