This patch causes problems:

$ make -C build distcheck
make: Entering directory `/home/eblake/m4/build'
GNUmakefile:76: *** commands commence before first target.  Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/home/eblake/m4/build'

I hate file formats that are sensitive to whitespace.  But since that is the 
culprit, I'm committing the obvious fix that replaces the TABs you inserted 
back to spaces.
