I can't reproduce this bug on my Solaris 5.8 (sparc) host.

Which perl are you running?  What is the output of "perl -V"?
Presumably you are not using the Perl shipped with Solaris 8, as that
causes other Autoconf tests to fail.

Which version of GNU m4 are you using?  I recommend GNU m4 1.4.2
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.2.tar.gz>.  You might try installing
that, then rebuilding Autoconf from scratch.

If upgrading to m4 1.4.2 doesn't fix the problem, please run
the command

cd tests
./testsuite -v -d 17
more testsuite.dir/017/* | cat

and send the output to <address@hidden>.  Thanks.
