You don't need mawk perse, but you do need an awk implementation. See if
your host system has /usr/bin/awk or /usr/bin/gawk - glibc checks for awk,
mawk and gawk. The reason we choose mawk is because it's better than gawk
(less installation problems history, better performance).

Problems installing mawk should be moved to the lfs-support list.
