Just checked out the perl source from NetLabs svn.  The Configure script

Install gawk, it's a superset of awk and should work. Hmm looking, gawk installs a symlink to awk. Usually configure checks for the various common versions of tools.

I may be looking in the wrong place but I've not found a wiki with build
instructions for perl.  I was assuming it would be Configure, make, make
test, make install.  I've not yet dug into the process of creating the
rpm either, but that is next.

It's been a long time since I built Perl but as I remember, it just needs the common tools, which includes [g]awk. Configure should continue to tell you if you're missing stuff.
