dahdi compilation requires gawk, which is not a dependency of the package

Bug Description

The dahdi installation requires a DKMS compilation, which dies on a make error:

make -C /usr/src/linux SUBDIRS=/usr/src/modules/dahdi/drivers/dahdi
DAHDI_MODULES_EXTRA="opvxa1200.o wcopenpci.o dahdi_echocan_oslec.o
zaphfc/ ../staging/echo/" HOTPLUG_FIRMWARE=yes modules DAHDI_BUILD_ALL=m
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-302-ec2'
awk: line 2: function gensub never defined
scripts/Makefile.build:82: *** 'Your awk program does not define gensub.
Use gawk or another awk with gensub'. Stop.

Installing gawk then re-running module-assistant auto-install dahdi appears to fix the problem. I would recommend adding "gawk" as a dependency.
