Is my library not installed or missing ?

When I am issuing gawk from Solaris-10 zone, it is complaining something missing. Do I need to install some package or something is broke here ?
root@bod1rack2:/# /usr/local/bin/gawk gawk: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
root@bod1rack2:/# find / -name
root@bod1rack2:/# find / -name
root@bod1rack2:/# ldd /usr/local/bin/gawk =>       (file not found) =>     /usr/lib/ =>  /usr/local/lib/ =>         /usr/local/lib/ =>   /usr/lib/ =>        /usr/lib/ =>   /usr/lib/ =>     /usr/lib/ =>         /usr/local/lib/ =>   /lib/ =>    /lib/ =>    /lib/ =>   /lib/ =>  /lib/ =>         /lib/ =>   /lib/

If there is a /usr/local/lib/ create a symbolic link to it.

cd /usr/local/lib
ln -s

Try ldd again. ldd /usr/local/bin/gawk

Jim, this is not at there in server. I tried finding it with find command also and that returned nothing. Seems like I need to install it, but not sure where should I install it from. It is Solaris-10, update-10

Should be available from the same place you got gawk. OpenCSW?

I am not sure, when and from where gawk was installed. It was installed long back on this server and now just now it came into notice that it is broke, when one application user complained about it. Is there a way to check it ?
Copying /usr/local/lib/ from another Solaris-10 Update-10 server to this server will work ?
