I started adding some m4 macros to my program, that I put in the m4

I then added

aclocaldir = $(datadir)/aclocal
aclocal_DATA = ax_boost_base.m4 ax_boost_regex.m4

Unless you're Boost, you shouldn't be installing these.

well, but my library needs boost regex library, so I was planning to
write an autoconf macro that not only searches for my library but also
for boost regex library...

If you really want to do that, you need to change the names of the
files, the macros themselves, and any public shell variables in the
macros so that you do not conflict with versions of these macros
someone else might install.

but in that case, aclocal should get those versions instead of mine,
shouldn't it?

aclocal will get the version that used in (or used in a macro that's used in which should be your renamed variant.

But you really should just use pkg-config instead.

I actually use pkg-config for my library; but boost libraries don't come
with a pkg-config .pc file unfortunately :-(

or did you mean something else?

As long as Boost isn't providing pkg-config metadata, you can simply refer directly to the Boost libraries you need in -l flags in your .pc file's Libs (or Libs.private).
