Review request: 8006933: Need to use nawk on Solaris to avoid awk limitations

Here is the bug report:

Use nawk instead of awk to avoid "awk: string too long near line 1" 
errors when running idlj in corba.  For new 'build-infra' style builds, 
this needs to be fixed in common/makefiles/IdlCompilation.gmk

The errors are seen if the path to the build directory in the source 
tree is too long, greater than ~92.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
