However, the problem I had with m4 make was not with perl, it said that
automake-1.14 was missing from the system. This does not make sense since
that would mean that there would be a cycle in the dependency tree.

Most automake projects know how to automatically regenerate the autoconf/automake parts if a file has changed. If the Makefile is trying to regenerate autotools parts, then a file has been edited or a file timestamp is incorrect. If a network filesystem like NFS is involved, then make sure that the client and server agree on the time (such as by using NTP). If you checked the files into a version control system and are using checked-out files, then it may be that the version control system did not preserve the time-stamps.

Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong? Is your software even
compatible with a NetBSD-4.0.1-x68k system?

I doubt that NetBSD is excluded.
