warn-on-use.m4 requires modern M4?

I get errors from autoreconf when bootstrapping Libidn on a Ubuntu 8.04
LTS system, and removing the recent warn-on-use.m4 file fixes it.  Is
there something in the file that requires a recent GNU M4?  Ubuntu 8.04
has GNU M4 1.1.10, and according to gnulib's DEPENDENCIES 1.4.5 or later
should be OK.

# ---------------------------------------
# For each whitespace-separated element in the list of NAMES, define
# HAVE_RAW_DECL_name if the function has a declaration among INCLUDES
# even after being undefined as a macro.
# See warn-on-use.h for some hints on how to poison function names, as
# well as ideas on poisoning global variables and macros.  NAMES may
# include global variables, but remember that only functions work with
# _GL_WARN_ON_USE.  Typically, INCLUDES only needs to list a single
# header, but if the replacement header pulls in other headers because
# some systems declare functions in the wrong header, then INCLUDES
# should do likewise.
# If you assume C89, then it is generally safe to assume declarations
# for functions declared in that standard (such as gets) without
# needing gl_WARN_ON_USE_PREPARE.
