I'll have a look to see if the issue can be fixed any other way, but the
reason I changed it away from AC_PROG_AWK was I was irritated when I ran
texi2dvi at the time taken for texindex to run in between runs of TeX.
The default awk program on my system (which I think is mawk) is much
faster so the run time for texindex is not as noticeable.
