E gawk-script-but-no-gawk-dep

Packages that use gawk scripts must depend on the gawk package. If they don't need gawk-specific features, and can just as easily work with mawk, then they should be awk scripts instead.

In some cases a weaker relationship, such as Suggests or Recommends, will be more appropriate.
