Thanks for this new release of GNU Awk. :-)

Gawk 4.1.2 compiles and passes the tests without a warning on my AMD K6-2, 450 Mhz, 384 MiB of RAM, with gcc 4.1.2.

Sure. I see that 'wctype.h' is unconditionally included in 'awk.h', but is conditionally included in 'regex_internal.h'. The opposite is true for 'stdlib.h'.

I think all the C89 headers, and maybe even 'stdbool.h', could be included unconditionally.

BTW, updating your lzip could produce a slighty smaller tarball:
