Ah, no - you want the 'gawk' package itself.

[cjw44@riva ~]$ dpkg -p gawk
Package: gawk
Priority: optional
Section: interpreters
Installed-Size: 708
Maintainer: James Troup <awkmaint@nocrew.org>
Architecture: i386
Version: 1:3.0.4-4

I'm not sure why 'apt-cache search gawk' didn't show that for you - it
does for me (on both potato and woody systems).

Odd. Does the user you're running emacs as have write permissions to the
file? Although admittedly then vi wouldn't work either. I don't use
emacs, so I can't really help here.

vi (well, vim, anyway) is the One True Editor. :)
