Ofcourse there is no /usr/bin/m4 on my system and /usr/local/bin/m4 is
version 1.4. I can work around by setting M4=/usr/local/bin/m4 in my

The solution is to configure on the host where you will be running 'make'. Create a build directory and configure from outside the source tree to allow doing builds on both Linux and Solaris.
