I'm guessing you installed your just-built m4 as
/global/homes/d/dmitryp/m4-1.4.16/install/bin/m4?  Are you exporting $M4
in your current environment, or just when you ran configure?  What does
'm4 --version' and '$M4 --version' say?  It looks like it is just a case
of you not completely setting up your environment, but I'm not quite
sure with the information you've presented here where you are going wrong.
