Of course it didn't, because the m4 1.4.6 testsuite is not complete and
doesn't exercise this functionality.  I did, however, check into CVS head
a patch that would fail if you ran 'make check' with BSD semantics of
getopt_long.  Also, try using 'make', not 'gmake' - m4 is one of the GNU
projects that would like to be portable to more than just GNU make, and
any failures encountered with BSD make are worth trying to fix.

It shouldn't be too hard to modify the example to find out for sure...
