Attempted to install wget 1.14 via homebrew:


config.status: creating Makefile
awk: illegal jump type 339
input record number 16, file
source line number 978
config.status: error: could not create Makefile
==> Exit Status: 1

awk 20110810 (https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-dupes/blob/master/awk.rb) - The One True Awk
GNU Wget 1.14 built on darwin12.0.0.

Suggest either (a) produce a warning, (b) using system awk, (c) checking for bad version?
