It looks like the awk manual page requires a review. It documents nonexistent flags like -V and possibly has more mistakes like this.

Thank you for this.
By the way, I noticed that the NetBSD manual seems up to date as far as -version is concerned.
Some improvements today with revision 362147:
awk(1): use -version instead of -V
Could you add a dependency on bug 247004?
-V is taken care of in bug #247004.
