 [ snipped, on a *quick* glance I didn't see anything wrong ]

 Google found a suggestion that this can be caused if awk is
pointing to mawk - I'm surprised if that is true for *this* error,
but you never know, so check it anyway - if it is pointing to mawk,
go back and recheck the host system requirements in the Preface.

 More significantly, somebody pointed out that you really have to
look at the output of the configure script, to see *why* it reported
that there is no -z relro support.

 Look through config.log in 'view' or 'less'.  Find the error
message 'linker with -z relro support required', then look at the
lines before that (perhaps a couple of screens) to see what error
message was produced, probably by gcc or ld.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
