autotest hits Solaris 9 awk limit

Ralf Menzel
Hi,

it seems like the native awk of Solaris 9 has a limit of 99 fields in
a record. This limit is hit when I try to execute `./testsuite --list'
for a recent CVS checkout:

--- snip ---
[anarion:tests]84> ./testsuite --list
GNU Autoconf 2.59c test suite test groups:

 NUM: FILE-NAME:LINE     TEST-GROUP-NAME
      KEYWORDS

awk: record ` banner-1 1 2 3 4 5 ...' has too many fields
--- snip ---

I tried to make a patch that works for me. I attack it to this message.
Perhaps it is of some use for you.

Thanks,
Ralf Menzel

Grrr, Solaris' awk!

I added a comment to your patch and committed; the resulting patch
is attached.

Have a nice day,
