B.3.2.4 Some VMS Systems Have An Old Version of gawk

Some versions of VMS have an old version of gawk. To access it, define a symbol, as follows:

     $ gawk :== $sys$common:[syshlp.examples.tcpip.snmp]gawk.exe

This is apparently version 2.15.6, which is extremely old. We recommend compiling and using the current version.
