 I almost thought this was going to be the answer. `mawk' is static, but
the symlink for `awk' was missing. (I'd been playing with gawk before
3.2-RC1 came out, I think gawk creates the link itself.) All sorts of
`optimistic' signs with fresh glibc and build trees (signal 11, signal 4,
...). Unfortunately, the end result was the same. Oh well, back to reading
my scripts.

current score:
bad --prefix:    1
typo in symlink: 2
missing symlink: 1
