Hi Bruno,

The 'm4' program that is installed in /usr/bin/m4 (not GNU m4).

Per GNU standards [1], it should be possible to build the package without
needing a GNU m4. If GNU m4 is needed to preprocess a source file, that
preprocessed source file ought to be included in the tarball. If GNU m4
is needed for the execution of some test, the test ought to be skipped
when no GNU m4 is present.

M4 is needed at run time: the skeletons/backends are implemented
in GNU M4.

Why not just build a few trivial dependencies and then move forwards?
I think, at least last time I checked, GNU m4 and autoconf and friends
all build just fine on Solaris 10.
