Default revdep-rebuild (gawk) issues

Hi all

New to this mailing list. I'm installing Gentoo and when I run
revdep-rebuild I get the following error

# revdep-rebuild
* Configuring search environment for revdep-rebuild
gawk: cmd. line:3: error: Unmatched [ or [^: /[^[:space:]]/
gawk: cmd. line:3: error: Unmatched [ or [^: /[^[:space:]]/
gawk: cmd. line:3: error: Unmatched [ or [^: /[^[:space:]]/
gawk: cmd. line:3: error: Unmatched [ or [^: /[^[:space:]]/
* No search defined -- this is a bug.

I've been going through /usr/bin/revdep-rebuild.sh but can't quite fix
the issue I've also been checking the Gentoo Forums and mailing
list archive but didn't find anything (maybe I'm not searching

If I've got it right, the issue is because of how gawk and the shell
interpret the "[" characters so I've been trying to escape them ...
but I seem to be doing something wrong

I also get a similar error when trying to emerge qca:

>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking qca-2.0.3.tar.bz2 to /var/tmp/portage/app-crypt/qca-2.0.3/work
>>> Source unpacked in /var/tmp/portage/app-crypt/qca-2.0.3/work

Good, your configure finished. Now run /usr/bin/gmake.

* Running qmake ...
awk: cmd. line:7: error: Unmatched [ or [^:
* - error while processing src/src.pro
* ERROR: app-crypt/qca-2.0.3 failed (configure phase):

Any hints, ideas, links, ...I could read into?
