See the note I just posted. If gawk is configured to not compile
against MPFR and GMP it does crash and burn, even on the older cygwin.

I think we never saw this before because we "know" to install those
libraries first...

Gag... I just tried under Linux. I see the same problem. So it's
generic, at least to 5.4.0.

I will see if I can figure out what the problem is.

Thanks anyway,
