I you need specific versions the quickest way is to compile them in your $HOME, bash and gawk are relatively small software. Upgrading systemwide those old machines will happen but not soon.

On gcc63, a sparc64 machine, an old bash and gawk are still
in use:

$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.2.39(1)-release (sparc-unknown-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
$ gawk --version
GNU Awk 3.1.5
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991-2005 Free Software Foundation.

Is it possible to install something newer on this machine?
