dmraid-activate failed due to lack of 'awk'

Bug Description

Using the "server" and "alternate" install images for 11.10 amd64, activating a raid array results in:

disk-detect: /sbin/dmraid-activate: line 263: awk: not found
disk-detect: /sbin/dmraid-activate: line 263: awk: not found
(i.e. twice)

From appearances, dmraid-active is attempting to use awk in its script, but awk is not
available in the root fs of the installer.

Hardware and environment:
Supermicro 1u box with X7DCA-L motherboard 2.4GHz XEON
8G ECC ram
dual 500G hard drives configured as "raid 1" with Adaptec controller emulation

switching to another console and doing "dmraid -ay" then switching back to the installer and selecting "go back" -> "detect disks" allows the install to proceed if anyone needs a work around until this is fixed.
