Thanks for the log.  From its message:

        4. input.at:93: testing Torturing the Scanner...
        input.at:184: bison -d -v -o input.c input.y
        > m4: No such file or directory

it appears that there is something wrong with your installation;
apparently m4 is not finding a installed file, or perhaps m4 itself is
not being found.  Can you please run the following commands, and send
us all the output that appears on your screen?

        mkdir d
        cd d
        wget ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-1.75b.tar.gz
        gunzip <bison-1.75b.tar.gz| tar xf -
        cd bison-1.75b
        sh configure --prefix=$PWD/../prefix
        make check

In the "make check" output you should expect a test failure for test
42 (it's known to be busted in bison 1.75b), but the other tests
should succeed.

By the way, there's no need to send us copies of bison*.tar.gz,
m4*.tar.gz, etc.  All you need to do is to tell us the URLs; we can
retrieve them ourselves.
