I didn't see this show up on bug-gnulib, nor in the list queue, so I took
the liberty of resending it...

Ok. Using the latest snapshot Eric provided me with, m4 fails to build
on Tandem NSK/OSS. Using the above, *plus* this patch:
both 'make' and 'make check' succeed.

...and I finally figured out the problem is a simple '-l' (i.e. the
amount of whitespace in the patch differs from the sources I have). With
'patch -l' I was able to apply the above patch as-is. (Or at least, the
copy of it that I had laying around that I sure don't recall changing,
other than to strip the m4 changes. I am now wondering if something went
amiss in my copy-pasting that it wasn't working right off.)

Is that more helpful (I hope!)? :-)
