Then i fear your libc is old and your cdebootstrap horribly outdated.

The current libc should not use awk (provided by mawk) for first time
installs but just on updates afaik.

And cdebootstrap has  a workaround for the problem in it, it installs
mawk before it installs libc.

I will check this out tonight, I got my amd64.
