Remove GNU awk/make/patch/sed wrappers.
These cause more trouble than they're worth, including libtool configuring in a reference to /usr/libexec/paludis/util, and automake tests invoking them with PATH=., causing them to fail. Users will have to manually arrange for the GNU versions to be visible, on systems where they are not the default.

This file lists the major changes between versions. For a more detailed list
of every change, see the ChangeLog.
+ * Paludis no longer includes wrappers for GNU awk, make, patch, and sed.
+ Users of systems where the default versions are not the GNU versions
+ must use PATH manipulation or aliases in /etc/paludis/bashrc to ensure
+ that the GNU versions are used. (This is not necessary on typical Linux
+ systems; check <command> --version if in doubt.)
* Compilers without tr1 memory, type traits and functional support are no
longer supported. This means you, gcc-3.
