 I raised the original bug, I don't see that there is any need to remove
`gawk-3.whatever' when it's linked dynamically, because it is hard linked
to `gawk' so it isn't taking up any extra space.

 The original problem was that we were left with a static gawk-3.1 which
was taking up a big chunk of space. The static `gawk' was rm'd and
replaced by a dynamically linked version, leaving the binary in place as

 I haven't yet tested the new way of doing things, but provided both
gawk's end up as dynamically linked then the bug should be closed.
