As Bruno mentioned in
he'd rather not head down this path due to the high cost/benefit
ratio.  Even if M4 builds with the abovementioned patch, the approach
will likely cause runtime misbehaviors -- almost certainly in
coreutils, and quite possibly also in M4.

Perhaps there's a better way.  In
I asked Matthew Woehlke why the patch was actually needed -- as it's
not 100% clear to me -- and that hasn't been followed up on yet.
