Hi there,

I couldn't build the PCI manager anymore on BeOS R5. Apparently, the 
"awk" version that came with my R5 Pro version could not correctly 
translate the pci.ids file in src/preferences/devices/.
I replaced the awk with a BSD awk I found on BeBits 
and it even chokes on the same line, though with slightly different 
The awk that comes with Dano/Zeta doesn't have any problems translating 
the file, though.

So if we intend to continue using awk this way, I'm afraid we need to 
build it from our tree before and use that one, as it also works fine.

Can anyone confirm this? Is anyone eager to fix it? :-)
