gawk installs everything in /usr/bin and leaves /bin alone, so /bin/awk is 
just an obsolete one. I'm during a build right now to see if we can't make 
that temp symlink as $LFS/usr/bin/awk rather than $LFS/bin/awk - if it can be 
$LFS/usr/bin/awk it might be replaced by the real stuff later on. That way we 
wouldn't have to remove the awk link.

Maybe you can share why you referred to the hint, in case I missed something 
in the book I should be adding?
