depending on mawk

During a dist-upgrade, I get:

Setting up kernel-image-2.4.26-1-k7 (2.4.26-1) ...
cp: cannot stat `/usr/bin/mawk': No such file or directory
ldd: /usr/bin/mawk: No such file or directory
A new kernel image has been installed, and usually that means...

Somewhere someone has written mawk where awk would work for us gawk
users who have removed mawk.

Or their package forgot to require mawk.

By the way, dmesg, bootlogd misses some stuff still.  Boot "... single", then
type shift page-up, shift page-down at the root passwd prompt, to see
a more full listing of boot messages than in dmesg, bootlogd.

One message that indeed does get logged is Unknown option:

VFS: Mounted root (cramfs filesystem).
Freeing unused kernel memory: 112k freed
Unknown option ''
ide_setup: hdc=ide-scsi

Wonder what it is about. Kernel command line was:
BOOT_IMAGE=DEB_2.4.25-1-k7 ro root=349 pci=biosirq
hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi max_scsi_luns=1
