Comment 4 for bug 1159933

As Thomas Dickey above says mawk 1.3.4 at least allows unsigned int values up to 4294967295.

Is there any reason the standard mawk package is stuck at 1.3.3? I have been using a compiled version of 1.3.4 and not only does it extend the range of unsigned ints but it also contains a number of bug fixes and executes about 30% faster on average.
