None geant4-config assumes gawk?

I'm installing Geant4.10.00 on Ubuntu. After compilation geant4-config --libs outputs something like this (note the awk error):

geant4.10.00-build> <path>/geant4.10.00/bin/geant4-config --libs awk: line 1: illegal reference to array array -L<path>/geant4.10.00/bin/../lib -lG4Tree -lG4FR -lG4GMocren -lG4visHepRep -lG4RayTracer -lG4VRML -lG4vis_management -lG4modeling -lG4interfaces -lG4persistency -lG4analysis -lG4error_propagation -lG4readout -lG4physicslists -lG4run -lG4event -lG4tracking -lG4parmodels -lG4processes -lG4digits_hits -lG4track -lG4particles -lG4geometry -lG4materials -lG4graphics_reps -lG4intercoms -lG4global -lG4clhep

The error goes away if I install gawk (apparently the default on Ubuntu is mawk, awk is symlinked to one or the other). The script geant4-config continues on error (missing set -e), and in this case I get the answer I want, but with --datasets I get an empty answer instead of the expected list.

Is gawk a requirement I have missed?

Cheers, Giuseppe
