  awk: Use random(3) instead of rand(3)

  While none of them is considered even near to cryptographic
  level, random(3) is a better random generator than rand(3).

  Use random(3) for awk as is done in other systems.

  Thanks to Chenguang Li for discussing this in the lists
  and submitting the patch upstream.
