The problem is that Solaris uses the "original" version of Awk by default
(apparently nobody knows why).
This version lacks many features which have been available in later versions
for approximately forever (in computing chronology :-)).
Two other versions exist on Solaris:
*	"nawk" ("new awk", i.e. the updated "old awk")
*	/usr/xpg4/bin/awk (another, posix-compliant awk).
Solaris seems to be weird this way.  Other platforms don't seem to have this
problem.  Linux and FreeBSD, for example, use GNU awk, which would have all
of the required functionality and more.
