8-year-jump for awk(1)

Thanks to Daniel Fojt, awk(1) has jumped from the 2012 version in DragonFly, to the 2020 version.  The commit message shows the highlights so you don’t have to read through the whole history.  Given that DragonFly’s awk is the One True awk, that eight years are only a small percentage of the overall history.
