Ncurses 6.0 and Hosts with mawk and gawk

Description

It may be that older versions of mawk are keeping ncurses 6.0 from building. Anyone with a host system install that has mawk and no gawk, or mawk and gawk may encounter issues where mawk is found first before gawk because of the configure system.

Add the following before configure:

AWK=gawk

Another option is to add a sed command:

sed -i 's/.:space:./ \t/g' ncurses/base/MKlib_gen.sh

or

sed -i s/mawk// configure
