That's unfortunate, but I'm afraid we'll have to bother them, if it's
an M4 version issue.  In my experience M4 1.4.1 is seriously buggy, at
least on some platforms, and it's not worth our time to attempt to
work around the bugs.

The next version of Autoconf will be a fairly "major" one.  I don't
think it's unreasonable to expect people to also upgrade M4 in order
to use it.  People who can't upgrade their M4 probably shouldn't be
upgrading their Autoconf either.

I am assuming here that the problem you observed is related to M4
versions.  If it's something else then we should fix it.
