Yes, as Eric indicated: you can do it like this:

- create a m4/ subdirectory of your top source directory,
- create a file m4/mymacro.m4 with the macro(s) contents,
- add the line
  to the toplevel file,
- optionally also add the line
  to the file

and rerun 'autoreconf -v'.  If your file uses the macro,
then it should now be picked up from the file in the m4 directory.

Have fun,
