Compiling gawk

Hi all,

I just compiled gawk instead of mawk during a from scratch LFS.
Here is what I did, maybe it is useful to others. Some notes before the
data: you need to install m4 and autoconf before gawk!
And the networking-diff should NOT be used. I only get errors with that

BTW sorry for the HTML code, but all my documentation is written like

<b>file</b> gawk-3.0.6.tar.gz
<b>file</b> gawk-3.0.6-doc.tar.gz
<b>file</b> gawk-3.0.6-networking-diffs.gz
<b>file</b> gawk-3.0.6-ps.tar.gz
<b>Start Install</b><br>
tar zxvf gawk-3.0.6.tar.gz<br>
tar zxvf gawk-3.0.6-doc.tar.gz<br>
../configure --prefix=/usr --datadir=/usr/share --infodir=/usr/share/info
make install<br>
<b>End Install</b><br>
