build trunk fails with awk: calling undefined function asort

GIT commit 80710b0f2796c0573e78d200ec185e3d8d7db0c8 introduced an issue for me compiling latest trunk failing with an awk error message:

awk: calling undefined function asort

I'm building OpenWrt on OS X 10.10.2 where awk is provided in a version called 20070501.
I have also installed GNU awk from macports where awk is then available on my system in version 'GNU Awk 4.1.1' - but it's binary is called 'gawk'.

While include/ takes care of this and will select 'gawk' rather than 'awk' on my system, include/ doesn't consider this and always calls 'awk'.

BTW, of course as a hotfix replacing all 'awk' by 'gawk' in include/ works

Please try the following change without any other workarounds:

  • include/

    diff --git a/include/ b/include/
    index 4ca8140..ab50879 100644
    a b  
    55# See /LICENSE for more information. 
     8export PATH:=$(TOPDIR)/staging_dir/host/bin:$(PATH) 
    810TMP_DIR ?= $(TOPDIR)/tmp 
    911ifeq ($(if $(TARGET_BUILD),,$(DUMP)),) 
    1012  -include $(TMP_DIR)/

I can confirm that your fix works for me and I'm not experiencing any further awk issue during a build on OS X.
