You should be compiling the Kernel from within the chroot
to get to a position where you can chroot you would need a compatible
awk on the host
But that is besides the point,
if awk is missing from your chroot then something is messed up

for kicks, lets look at what is going on

    grep "inat\-ta" * -r

you will get something like this

arch/x86/lib/inat.c:#include "inat-tables.c"
arch/x86/lib/Makefile:$(obj)/inat-tables.c: $(inat_tables_script)
arch/x86/lib/Makefile:$(obj)/inat.o: $(obj)/inat-tables.c
arch/x86/lib/Makefile:clean-files := inat-tables.c
arch/x86/tools/gen-insn-attr-x86.awk:# Usage: awk -f
gen-insn-attr-x86.awk x86-opcode-map.txt > inat-tables.c
$(srctree)/arch/x86/lib/insn.c $(srctree)/arch/x86/lib/inat.c

so awk is being used, it is creating  inat-tables.c  (
arch/x86/tools/gen-insn-attr-x86.awk is the script, and
x86-opcode-map.txt is the file it is working with )
but awk seems to be missing !
did you skip it?

I doubt you would have gotten to the Kernel without awk, which tells
me that you have a working awk in /tools
in 6.64 you re-enter the chroot but without the tools path

go back to 6.38. Gawk-4.0.0, and make sure it installs correctly
you may need to amend your PATH

    export TEMP_PATH=$PATH
    export PATH=$PATH:/tools/bin

once you have confirmed awk is installed, fix the PATH

    export PATH=$TEMP_PATH
    unset TEMP_PATH

and try again

Talented, Witty And Thoughtful .. is how most describe me.
