I included your uninstall fix, as well as the above suggestion and I made the 
same change for awkdatadir - it also pointed to /usr/share/gawk (now 

I changed one line. You suggested:
rm -fr $(DESTDIR)$(datadir)/*

I changed it to "rm fr ...$(datadir)"

We might as well remove the entire /usr/share/gawk-3.1.1 directory, not just 
the files in it and leave an empty directory around.

The patch is called gawk-3.1.1-3.patch. I have uploaded it, modified the book, 
removed the uninstall warning from the book.
