I'll make sometime for it tomorrow morning. The files to be modified/generated
are not too complicated. The only caveats I foresee is that awk doesn't have
nice capabilities to die if it cannot open the files, as perl would...

Anyway, look out for the file in uclibc tomorrow, unless somebody does it
before ;)

I agree too, but not because I prefer awk to perl. Mostly because perl, even
linked to uclibc, needs more than 20Mb in its latest releases.
