According to the PKGBUILD, nothing is being stripped. The Arch Linux
package is just an archive of files produced by a script provided by
upstream.⁽¹⁾ If the file isn’t present, it’s because gawk is not
installing it in the first place.
If anything is missing, consider filing a bug report to gawk
developers at <bug-gawk at gnu.org>.
